I am a mixed race Canadian born and raised in Toronto’s east end.
I graduated from Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts in 2006 with a Performing Arts degree, and am currently pursuing my career as a singer, actor, dancer and model.
Although I accomplished 10 years worth of classical vocal training, I grew up listening to jazz, and those roots can be heard in the music I produce, write, record and perform all over the city today. My music is a mix of Soul, Jazz, R&B and Hip Hop that has been affectionately dubbed “fusion”. I have been performing since 2001 and have performed at numerous venues across the G.T.A such as Mel Lastman Square ( “Beats not Bullets”) The Mod Club ( II CMP anniversary show) The Opera House ( July 7th 2007) Isabel Bader Theatre ( Dec 9th 2007) with repeat performances at The Pilot Tavern (quarterly, Sunday Jazz series) Suba lounge, China Doll, Bola Lounge, Spice Bistro, and most recently, Buddies in Bad Times Theatre (March 7th & May 15th 2008).
I’ve performed abroad on resorts in Cienfuegos, Cuba, Port of Spain , Trinidad and Negril, Jamaica. My music has hit number 1 on Project Bounce (CIUT), and has seen rotation on Flow 93.5, 88.1 and 89.5. I am an independent artist, and am not managed at the time.
I completed comprehensive acting training that spanned material from classical to contemporary, covering Stage, Film & TV and Radio/Voiceover work. I am currently represented by Noble Caplan Abrams for my acting.
My professional dance training consists of Ballet ( Cecchetti Method ), Tap, and Jazz, with secondary training in Hip Hop, Modern and African Dance. I learned to choreograph at a young age because I was a competitive gymnast and brought dance to my floor routines.
I have always loved the entertainment industry, and began sewing and designing clothes at a young age because I couldn’t find the fashions I wanted in my size.
I have modeled independently for over 7 years, doing runway and print for such diverse retailers as Secrets from Your Sister, Misbehavin’, Trove, Risque and Shoon.
Additionally, I was crowned Miss Canada Plus in October 2007 and am the reigning Queen. As a plus sized talent and current ambassador for plus sized women I’ve found it’s hard to find representation in this city, especially in the entertainment industry- so I do my best to keep the buzz alive.
