Theatre and photography are my two passions but I also draw and paint a little when I can find time. I'm an avid reader and will read pretty much anything. I also adore travelling which is a great mix with my photography as I love exploring new places with my camera. I've been to 11 countries on 3 continents so far. The problem is I get to love once place so much I keep going back instead of somewhere new.
Career wise, I work half as an actor and half with my photography business. I work mainly in the theatre with my camera, photographing various productions around town and also doing headshots for performers, many of them my friends. I'm also very involved in the community theatre in Halifax, both on and off stage. I'm also very interested in makeup, both beauty and special effects and plan to go to Vancouver Film School for some training so I can add yet another career aspiration to my roster. To pay the bills I have several part-time jobs, all of which I have managed to grow to love even though they aren't arts oriented.
Most people describe me as a shy person and I've definitely embraced my more introverted side as I've gotten older. However, those who know me best (a few very close friends and family) know that I can be outgoing, imaginative and even a little odd at times. It can take a little time to really get to know the extroverted side of me which is why all my good friends are very patient I guess. I also think I have a pretty good sense of humour and can be fairly sarcastic at times, probably due to exposure to Monty Python at a young age.
My idea of a fun night would be more like a glass of wine and a movie rather than a beer and a party. I tend to avoid crowded bars and parties and prefer to just hang out with a few friends for dinner or games or movies. Though the occasional night out dancing is always a nice change of pace.
Movies: Breakfast at Tiffany's and anything with Audrey Hepburn, When Harry Met Sally, Enchanted, Kill Bill 1 & 2, Fido, Love Actually, Anything with Meryl Streep, The Sweetest Thing, Pleasantville, and Amelie are some of my favourites I can think of off the top of my head. I also love horror movies (especially really bad ones), most action movies and sci-fi and love disaster movies like The Poseidon Adventure and Towering Inferno.
Music: Walk of the Earth, Pomplamoose, Nataly Dawn, Hey Rosetta, Jason Mraz, Feist, The Beatles, Joel Plaskett, The Shins, The Decemberists, Lilly Allen, Regina Spector, pretty much anything.
Shows: Happy Endings, American Horror Story, Community, United States of Tara, Dead Like Me, Mad Men, Grey's Anatomy, Buffy the Vampire Slaye/All things Joss Whedon, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, The Newsroom, basically give me an HBO or Showtime show I will probably love it.
Food: French, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Greek, Anything my grandmother makes, I adore all food and will pretty much try anything as long as there are no mushrooms!
