Coaching Philosophy

As your coach, it’s my job to celebrate what you are great at, identify what you need to work on, and provide practical hands-on tools to help you augment both in a safe, dynamic and collaborative coaching environment. Think of me as your guide. And your number one fan. Expect to dive deep, to be challenged, to be supported. And to having the kind of rich, transformative fun that will yield great insights and your most versatile, most compelling, most radiant speaking voice.


  • MFA Acting & Graduate Diploma in Teaching Voice (York University, Toronto)
  • Diploma in Physical Theatre (TooBa Physical Theatre Conservatory, Vancouver)
  • BA in Communication (Simon Fraser University, Vancouver)
  • Certified Hatha Yoga Instructor (Open Door Yoga, Vancouver)
  • Certified Yin Yoga Instructor (Tracey Soghrati, Toronto)

The majority of my training is in the Linklater method of voice work. I am also compelled by the explorations of Patsy Rodenburg, particularly her Second Circle work, and Cecily Barry. My voice work is increasingly informed by the incredible potential for Yin yoga to aid in the development and expression of a clear voice. While living in Canada, I taught Voice at York University and the Humber College Theatre Performance Programme from 2009 – 2015.

Performance and Coaching

I’ve performed in major cities in Canada, Ireland, and India where I am the resident voice coach for two of West Bengal’s most formidable Third Theatre theatre companies, Satabdi and Pathasena.

Projects I’ve coached for either voice or dialect or both include:

  • Toronto International Film Festival Rising Stars 2014 – present
  • TEDx Toronto
  • Delores
  • Ribcage: this wide passage
  • A Midsummer Night’s Dream
  • Forbidden Fruit: Evolution
  • Finding Makarov: Operation Kingfish (Call of Duty series)

I am a Shastri Arts Fellow and two of my creative projects have been generously supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
