Welcome and bienvenue.


When it comes to creative stuff, I like to do many things: I am a writer of fiction, screenplays, plays, comedy sketches, copy, and the occasional poem. I’m editor in chief of the Bloody Key Society Periodical literary journal. For a living, I teach acting and writing classes via I.O. Acting Studio. I am also a professional actor, filmmaker, and (occasional) board game designer. Check my Bio for detailed info.

Currently, a draft of my first novel is complete. I’m working on short stories, and have had a number of pieces published (online and in print):

A Wild and Precious Life anthology (pending)
Talking Soup Magazine
Pulp Metal Magazine
Open Pen London
The Danforth Review
Urban Graffiti
untethered (print only)
Transition Magazine (print/pdf)
Mulberry Fork Review (pdf)
Menda City Review
(Cult)ure Magazine

The Anorak, my play about the Montreal Massacre and the life and death of Marc Lépine, has been critically acclaimed, and won the 2007 Montreal English Critics Circle award for Best Text. The play was last performed in December 2014, for the 25th anniversary of the tragedy. Previous external productions include the french translation in Quebec City (with Gaetan Rancourt acting), and two UK productions including London, England, Off West End, in July 2014, with Felix Brunger in the main role, directed by Matthew Gould.

I have made several films that were Official Selections in international festivals, and have won awards. Check out
Ack, No Ledge Films for details. Past film collaborations include working with Denis Villeneuve (on Polytechnique), Elias C. Varoutsos (on Foreign Language), and Raphaël Hébert (on Communication Policy).

Based in Montreal, I am married to a gorgeous wife, and we have a ridiculously awesome daughter, a tremendous son, a second phenomenally outstanding daughter, and another little unit on the way.
