I have worked as a producer, actor, singer, and musician since 1987, beginning my career in Gatineau at le Théâtre des Lueurs and le théâtre des Lutins. I have produced many plays with a number of non-profit groups including le théâtre du Cyclone, Animatour, and currently own and manage AnimaXion with over 50 contractors and animators.
I have toured in Europe (main role in Jesus de Montreal the play), and have been working with Odyssey Showcase as a performer and consultant since 2010 primarily with « Canada Roars: A Musical Taste of Our Canadian Heritage/ Notre patrimoine canadien, une odyssée musicale”, “Canada Speaks” and “The Gift of Jazz”.
Based on my experience and love for storytelling as a Francophone actor and producer, always staying true to my roots, it only seems natural to take on the role as an Advisory Board member to continue contributing to Odyssey Showcase’s mandate and vision of storytelling in a way that is inclusive, relatable, accessible, entertaining and meaningful. I look forward to the journey ahead!
