As a mentor and dramaturg, I have worked on a wide variety of performance/writing projects  with artists, companies, and groups of students. My most recent stint as Student Writer-in-Residence at Western University (2018-19) allowed me to mentor undergraduate students in text and performance-based projects. My work as a creative mentor also includes extensive experience in event planning and volunteer coordinating, editing, and the managing of creative and academic publications. Please feel free to get in contact with me for more information.
In addition to these services, I have keynoted several talks, lecture series, and events. Back at Western University, I had the opportunity to lecture in a number of creative writing classes, to students in all years of study, on the subject of dramatic writing and performance making. Recent keynote appearances have included: WordsFest London, London Open Mic Poetry, Poetry London, and The Coterie. Highlights of my appearances  include: presenting excerpts of my multidisciplinary work alongside multi award-winning author of The Marrow Thieves, Cherie Dimaline, and interviewing Governor's General award-winning novelist Nino Ricci at the inaugural Alice Munro Chair in Creativity lecture series.
