    I am an artivist on a relentless pursuit to improve the lives of children globally. That’s my mission and I make no mystery of my agenda.

  • I Got Me: 10 Years Since The Lie

    I Got Me: 10 Years Since The Lie

    I have nothing to prove. To anyone.

    #MentalHealth: A Documentary

    There was a time where I was so scared to say anything that my mouth just simply wouldn’t move. My lips wouldn’t separate, my teeth would clench, and my jaw would stay firmly in place.  I was traumatized. But that day is not today. Today, I finally released a project that I have been working […]

    With tears filled in my eyes, I remember getting the news. I’ll never forget it. I wandered in the very public shopping mall until I found a crease in the wall to collapse onto before finally succumbing to the floor. I was in Montreal and my best friend from Calgary was calling to tell me […]

  • Do You See You? Book Reading

    Do You See You? is my first person testimony with respect to an abusive relationship I experienced during my twenties. It was not an easy book to write, but it was an important story for me to share. There have been tears shed almost every step of the way, but they were almost necessary to […]
