I am a Canadian theatre practitioner based in the London area. I have always had a passion for any sort of movement from dance to circus, which is what brought me to England to study at the East 15 Acting School's Physical Theatre course. Where I have grown as an artist and aspired to find a way of using the body to be the focus of what his theatre was saying.
As my exploration and understanding of the physical grew i began to explore the use of text and movement to see how they could complement each other and in which way one elevates the other. That is what led to the creation of my theatre company Eramosa Theatre Co. It is that constant exploration of text and movement that drives and motivates our work. In Canada I trained at Fanshawe College's Theatre Arts program where I was first exposed to theatre that was beyond a 'naturalistic' sense. Which I later took forward as the foundation to my view of theatre.

I have explored various methodologies of creating theatre from Viewpoints, La Ban's Efforts, Meyerhold's Biomechanics, Neutral, Larval, & Character Mask, Commedia Dell' Arte, Le Jeu, Clown, Bouffon, Mime, Dance: Ballet & Contemporary, and Aerial Circus: Trapeze, Rope, & Silks.
