What’s your earliest memory of the theatre?

My earliest memory of theatre is performing a sketch onstage at my family church to help raise money for motorcycle missionaries. I might have played the motorcycle but I can’t be sure…

What’s been your favourite role with Kompany?

Stage Managing Book Of Jobes! was my first gig outside of Edmonton and was the first and only time I was able to work with a full choir!

What’s your favourite children’s book?

 I have fond memories of being confused and delighted by The Secret World of Og! Strong memories of the escape artist baby that thought he was a dog!

What’s your favourite sea creature?

 Big fan of Octopuses! The amount they can learn in a single lifetime without any information being passed down is remarkable! They also seem to have a wicked sense of humour!

What’s your favourite thing to eat?

 Pizza anytime, all the time.

Which would you rather have for a pet: a dog, a cat, a fish, or a bird?

I’m incredibly allergic to most domestic pets so I think I have to go with a fish! Though I have no idea where I would put a tank…

Which would you rather have for a pet: a shark, a tiger, an alligator, or a t-rex?

T-Rex! I think they would be very independent though possibly I could train one to ride…?

Would you rather live in a medieval castle, a futuristic space station or a jurassic jungle?

 Futuristic Space Station without a doubt! Though hopefully they’ve mastered artificial gravity by then bone atrophy is something I spend far to much time worrying about.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I would love to go to Churchill Manitoba and see some polar bears in person and the northern lights almost completely unobstructed! I’m very interested in exploring the diversity that Canada has to offer!

What’s your favourite memory of working with Kompany?

 Picking up the phone to work on Book of Jobes and getting in Jan’s car for first read the next day!

We know you’re secretly just a very tall 10 year old, but what do you think is something you’ve really carried with you from childhood?

 I’ve always loved obscure and unnecessary facts! Still a strong part of my conversation survival kit!
