Growing up in Niagara Falls, Canada I’ve has always had a love of television and the industry, and spent much of my childhood watching, analyzing and, unbeknownst to me, writing spec scripts for creative writing class in grade school.
After graduating from high school I packed up and moved an hour away to attend Humber College in Toronto where I graduated with honors from the Film and Television Production course. I loved residence food that much I decided to stay another year to earn a post graduate degree in Writing and Producing For Television.
In 2005 I decided to give “being a princess” a whirl and moved to England, but all hope was lost with the engagement and eventual marriage of Wills and Kate. Since then I’ve put all my efforts into realizing my real dreams, being a television writer, network executive and a Lego Master Builder – in no particular order.
Currently I’m a member of the Sheffield based improv troupe The Antics, and I travel to Los Angeles annually to continue my comedy education at The Groundlings in West Hollywood, where I’m enrolled in the Core Track Training Program. In the past several years I’ve had short films screened at the Virgin Media Shorts, Canberra and Colchester Film Festivals, earning honorable mentions in the latter.
Besides writing and improv comedy I love graphic design, and I’m a self taught web designer and developer. I spend a lot of time at the computer creating things in WordPress, Illustrator and Photoshop, and am always looking for new projects to challenge my creativity.
During my down time you can probably find me cheering on my favorite football team – The Buffalo Bills, improving my kill/death ratio on Call of Duty: Black Ops or hitting the roller derby track with my team The Hallam Hellcats. I openly admit to spending too much money on Lego, watching television in the name of “research” and having a current addiction to Chai Tea. I’m also the co-host of The Goldnerds Podcast, the un-officially-official Goldbergs podcast where we have interviewed many of the cast, crew and writers.
I’m happily married and live with my husband and two cats Loki and Ennis, and my inspiration for everything is Tina Fey and Wendi McLendon-Covey.
