I have a B.F.A. in Film and a B.Ed. in Arts Education.
I teach because I believe it’s important to give back; I’m motivated by seeing and nurturing the creativity of my students. I did not want a “normal” job, I chose to be a teacher to add another sense of purpose to my life beyond my personal aspirations. My goal as a teacher is to help students hone their ability to tell stories through mediums like video and photography; my other objective as a teacher is to help students become resilient and prepared for adulthood.
When I was in grade three, I started the environmental club at my elementary school.
In my early twenties, I worked as an independent rock show promoter and hosted my own punk rock radio show in Regina.
I’ve been to New York City by myself six times.
I’ve directed two one act plays for Regina Little Theatre.
In 2016, I took up the hobby of flower gardening and continue to enjoy it.
In 2017, I drew something every day for the entire year.
I played Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, and Tenor Sax in high school.
There is a play in New York City that I’ve seen twenty-nine times, so far, since 2013.
My favorite paintings are The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh, Christina’s World by Andrew Wyeth, Isle of the Dead by Arnold Böcklin, and Dominant Curve by Vasily Kandinsky; I’ve seen all of them in person, at least once.
