The Mozaique: The Beginnings

The Beginnings January 6, 2015 If you are reading this, I can only assume you like theatre, film, arts, and actors. I am an actor. So maybe you’ll like me.

The E.D. Types: WhooSaaaah

WhooSaaaah January 3, 2015 The second half of 2014 seemed to speed by, and December arrived to find me a little worse for wear. Truth is, when it comes to my life and sense of self, I am a control freak.  Encountering situations that force me to play catch-up, and where my ability to manage […]

The E.D. Types: A Gathering Moment

A Gathering Moment  November 24, 2014 This evening I had the pleasure of assisting at my first AGM as ED.

Starting off with a Thwack! July 21, 2014  My first community challenge this year’s was the QDF Softball Tournament.  What a wonderful way to start!

The E.D. Types: Merging

Merging July 3, 2014 What’s it like to take on the Executive Director’s role at QDF? Imagine that you’re driving in a familiar, yet different city. It is rush hour and you have to merge onto a highway, at a spot where it is also intersecting and merging with several other highways. Add to this that […]


A Community Built on Exchange One of the greatest gifts I have received as I take up the reigns, is the willingness of members to share their time with me, and to allow me to see the theatre world though their eyes. While I am no where done my exploration, I can say that our […]
