Short description of your art.

I am a multimedia artist. I create and produce professional-quality content. My mediums are: video, photography, animation, and audio.

Where did you learn your art?

I studied Creative Arts and Languages with a focus on Digital Media at CEGEP John Abbott College. I also completed my Bachelors of Arts at Ryerson University in downtown Toronto. My degree was RTA (Radio and Television Arts): Media Production. While in university I also pursued a minor in Professional Communications. I have worked on various Hollywood productions during my studies. My first one was the show "The Next Star" on YTV in 2014. Later that year, I also worked on an episode for CBC's "Market Place". In 2018, I worked at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) for a few days. I worked on set with many Hollywood actors (this was a very exciting experience!). In 2019, I directed and produced an indigenous themed talk show which is being pitched to Canadian broadcasting networks.

Where do you find inspiration for your work?

I have always love TV shows and movies. Growing up, I did not see any representation of myself in the media. If there was an indigenous character, they were often an outdated stereotype portrayal. I want to change this for future generations. My dream would be to have our own self-sufficient Indigenous Hollywood where we are sharing our stories and breaking stereotypes.

Have you received any formal training?

College and University.

Have you ever received any awards or special recognition?

2010 - High School Valedictorian, MacLean Memorial School 2010 - Indigenous Role Model Award, Chibougamau Friendship Centre 2016 - Role Model Award, Mistissini Youth Council 2018 - Youth Role Model, H.O.P.E. Foundation 2018 - Frank Hori Award, Ryerson University
