Upcoming voice workshops in Vancouver at
The Living Voice Meisner Acting Lab is a unique combination of Meisner Approach (as taught by Larry Silverberg of the True Acting Institute) and Vocal Technique to support an alive, connected and emotionally agile performance. A comprehensive, step by step system appropriate for all skill levels. Part-time classes begin late January 2014.


13 - 15 DECEMBER

The last workshop of 2014 before the prices go up! The Unleash Your Voice workshop is designed for non-performers to build authentic, confident expression. SIGN UP HERE
I've partnered with public speaking professional Charles Wang to create a workshop series focussed on authenticity in the boardroom and powerful presentations. 

We're looking for Beta Testers for the program. If your office is interested in participating contact me and we will set up a meeting.
Refer a friend who enrols in a workshop or private sessions and you'll receive a free private session or $50 towards your next workshop as a thank you from me. 


The lottery took place last night (December 5th) and the names have been announced!
I'm currently at number three on the waiting list. I find myself hoping that at least three artists decide not to participate for whatever reason. If you want to see who made it, visit the Fringe website.
Ronnie Burkett's Daisy Theatre is playing at the Cultch until 15 December. I'm going to see it on closing night. Come out for a truly unique theatre experience.


The holidays can be a stressful time. In the hustle and bustle of giving to others, don't forget to take care of yourself!

Two of my students are fantastic massage professionals and I have made a New Years resolution to myself to not let one month go by without a visit to one of them.

Inner - Outer Discoveries

I think all actors do their fair share of naval gazing, it is essential to know yourself if you are going to inhabit other people on a regular basis.
I am currently working with a Women's Empowerment Coach ( - she's awesome!) to help me work though some of the emotional stuff that is limiting me in my business. Today we had a conversation that reminded me how powerful an outside perspective can be. . . READ FULL ARTICLE

Lullabies - Still Musing

My mother recently reminded me of something that speaks to my previous posts about self-song and lullabies. When I was a kid I threw some serious temper tantrums. But my mother discovered that if she could just get this ball of kicking and screaming and biting into the bathroom, plunk her into a warm bath, lock the door (and then stand outside to listen and make sure I was safe) as soon as I thought I was alone I'd start singing. Angry songs at first, but within five minutes I would miraculously sing myself happy. Every time. . . READ FULL ARTICLE

Tip of the Week: Break up with your tension

We all know that things like habitual tension are more than just physical. It's a committed emotional relationship. We grow attached to our old ways.
