Tell us about yourself & how you got into arts marketing.
I discovered my passion for theatre in high school and from that point on I knew I wanted to live in that world. At University I studied Theatre as well as Marketing and Communications. That’s when I realized I could combine these for a creative and fulfilling career where I could talk about something that I love every day!
Where is the best place you have travelled & why?
One of my favourite places I’ve ever traveled is Laos. It’s a beautiful country full of the friendliest people, the best food, and the most incredible sights. I spent three days living in a treehouse and zip-lining across the jungle. I can truly say that was one of the most unbelievable and terrifying experiences of my life (I still can’t even think about the size of the spiders or the sounds I heard at night).
Laos was amazing because, out of all the places I’ve visited in the world, it felt really authentic and uncommercial (there wasn’t a single 7-11 anywhere, which is so rare). The people were so welcoming and laid-back which made you really slow down and take note of things.
What was the first show you remember seeing as a child?
I fondly remember Green Thumb Theatre coming to my elementary school and performing fun twists on fairy-tales. But I believe the first show I ever saw was a band called One Horse Blue at an outdoor concert in Kamloops. I actually have no idea who they are – my uncle took me so that he could impress women – but I still have the signed bandana.
If you could grab a coffee with one artist – living or dead – who would it be and why?
Amy Poehler! I think she is so funny and intelligent. She always seems unapologetically herself in her comedy and life. Also, I think we could be best friends!
?What are you most looking forward to in your new role at LMPR?
Coming from the world of theatre, I’m so excited to work with the wide variety of clients from all different types of art organizations. And, of course, working with the incredibly talented and enthusiastic LMPR team!
