Heritage Minute: Jackie Shane!

Bucket, meet list. I grew up in front of my parents’ old television set, watching hours upon hours of shows and commercials — to be honest, this largely informed my desire to write television. I regret nothing. It was hard to make friends when you were a gay biracial kid in the suburbs. But mixed…

Diggstown: Season 4 – October 12th on CBC!

Toronto Star: “On Patricia Wilson.”

I wrote a piece for The Toronto Star on a beloved figure within the city’s 2SLGBTQ+ community, Patricia Wilson. A recent institutional review at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre has led to staffing changes at the queer institution — a restructuring that has not come without controversy. Beyond measured statements from both parties, there are few…

Woo hoo! Received word today that my half-hour comedy project Ali Knows Best has received the first phase of development funding through the Rogers-BSO Script Development Fund.
