Writing, Teaching, Film, Acting, Life.

When it comes to creative stuff, I like to do many things: I am a writer of fiction, screenplays, plays, comedy sketches, and the occasional poem. For a living, I teach acting and writing classes at I.O. Acting & Creative Studio in Montreal, Canada. I am also a professional actor, a filmmaker, and an avid gamer (mainly D&D). Check my Bio for detailed info.

Currently, a draft of my first novel is complete. I have completed a Master of Arts in Creative Writing (With Distinction) from Teesside University (UK, distance learning) while working on a comedy pilot called Shitdad. I have also released my first collection of stories and novella, purchasable via Amazon:

A number of my pieces have been published (online and in print):


The Anorak, my solo show 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 2019, for the 25th anniversary of the tragedy, with Alex Dubois acting. 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. The play will appear at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Festival by No Frills Theatre Company of Kent, England, with Andrew Hogarth directing.

I have made several films that were Official Selections in international festivals, and have won awards. Check out
Ack, No Ledge Films for details. My latest is a film version of The Anorak, completed in Spring, 2021, named Finalist in the 2021 SoCal (Southern California) Film Awards, and an Official Selection of the Docs Without Borders International Film Festival in Delaware, USA. Past film collaborations include working with Denis Villeneuve (on Polytechnique), Elias C. Varoutsos and Rakeen Saad (on Foreign Language), and Raphaël Hébert (on Communication Policy).

Based in Montreal, I am married to a gorgeous wife, and we have four young children. Life is crazy.
