a human being; person:
the most beautiful being you could imagine.
is it human though?
Explore narratives within my fantastical worlds, meeting different beings and various states of being.

Precinct is 45 minute improvised narrative. This means the performers know who their characters are but no idea where the story will end up (spoiler: it's always hilarious). Andy Assaf, Dimitri Kyres, and Jason Grimmer play the three main cops: soft-hearted Carl "Carly" Boucher, short-fused John Calgary, and gruff step-father of five Captain Bill Garber. Other guests will be announced soon! Together these tough cops are cleaning up the mean streets of Montreal's Plateau one perp at a time!

Ubuntu Talks is a media platform that strives to create positive representations of black bodies in the media. This platform showcases and celebrates blackness by exploring various identities and sharing people’s experiences with the world.
