Metis/Anishinaabe artist, filmmaker, writer, dancer and speaker. I graduated from both the Vancouver Film School and the National Screen Institute’s New Voices program in Canada. While at NSI I created Dreamcatcher: A short dramatic fantasy of Aboriginal mythology. In 2012 I created Tik-A-Lee-Kick, an honest and candid telling of a young Aboriginal woman’s perspective on the role of the Little People. The artwork that I'm best known for is The Men’s Banner Project. This work is a combination of interactive performance and installation, about which I also lecture.
I'm currently the Media Development Intern for the Cambridge Writers' Workshop, developing a podcast and film series. My background is mostly in documentary films but my ambition is to create sci-fi/fantasy and children's entertainment.
