I was born on the outskirts of Quebec City and grew up with the mountains on my doorstep, in a heritage farmhouse with crooked floors. I share both my father's Vancouver-bred smoothness and my Quebecois mother's fiery French Canadian culture.
Music became important to me at a very young age, and my violin was my constant companion through 10 years of classical training from ages 6 to 16. I discovered theatre in high school, reveling in the creative outlet of performance art. I enrolled in the recreational program at the Quebec Circus School as a teenager and was immediately hooked by the diversity and crossover potential of the circus world. I discovered Cyr wheel in the school's professional program, building an identity rooted in movement for myself within the round and fluid confines of this artistic discipline. I also trained as a flyer and explored dance and violin manipulation throughout my time at school. I graduate in June of 2017.
I have always been stimulated by diversity and new horizons. I love being part of multidisciplinary projects that explore different facets of art and performance. I am a circus artist (Multi Improv night - Interferences arts and technology 2016, Productions Haut-Vol - summer 2015) as well as a slam poet (Quebec provincial Grand Slam finalist 2016), singer-songwriter (Bleu kérosène), and dance and theatre enthusiast (co-founder and artist in BAM [Bouillon d'art multi] - 2016 and 2017; Untouched Land alias toi pis ta solitude en sachet déshydraté - Laval University Theatre Festival 2017). I strive for poetic honesty in every project I undertake and seek to explore a creative vocabulary that fuses different art forms to create authentic forms of expression.
