I have been a storyteller of sorts for as long as I can remember...

Ballet, theatre, the clown at my sister's birthday party (whether she asked or not). I've always wanted to entertain, amuse or influence people in some way. I believe it comes from the deep belief that we can make a small change in another person and therefore the cumulative WE can make a large change in our communities and the planet. Lofty goals, I realize. For me, in my immediate everyday life, I just want to get a smile or a laugh. At my joke, my photo, my commercial, my film, at ME... As long as the "other" is smiling, I feel I've answered my calling. I'm always one great fart joke away from bliss.

Dance love

I grew up dancing on stage. Ballet gave me confidence, discipline and a love of performance. Dancers are some of my favourite subjects. I still strap on the 'ol dance shoes these days but I'm not quite as fast as I used to be ;) These are the talented young dancers from Ballet Ouest in Pointe Claire.

memories of being a tiny dancer....
waiting in the wings...heart pounding, waiting for your music
