She'll Never Know: Definitive Playlist for 2014

Could I just have 6 minutes of your time? Here are the 12 shorts of She'll Never Know. Each one is under 30 seconds, deeply personal and accurate to my feelings about relationships I've been in. I hope they don't seem like a punch line of a garbage can desperately in love with an attractive "anime" stock cartoon. The robotic voices are both all I have the means to use with the program I made these in and I think lend an effective detached quality that accurately represents my own tension and inability to speak intuitively about heartbreak. In case you were wondering, I am the garbage can, although I do relate to the stock anime character occasionally.

Bathtub Bran Launch Party

This is my set at Raw Space in Toronto for Bathrub Bran's Season 2 Launch Party. It was dubbed as fantasy comedy, a description I will from this point forward, champion!


filmed by Daniel Goodbaum

You can also check out the version of the set I did for Doored 15


filmed by Sarah D'Angelo

Currently I'm working on my set for Doored 18. Hard to believe that I've done 17 already. But with that many under my belt, it's nice to have that much material to grab from when I'm asked to do a special event like this. It was an honour to be a part of this launch party. I love Bathtub Bran. The Toronto dance community is filled with amazing people. It was great to meet a few more the other night!

Round Table Residency


I created this space, New LaPierre Office, to be a work environment for me to watch the hit Netflix original series, Orange Is The New Black. The task of watching Orange Is The New Black became a priority to be better able to relate with people as it is a popular show that many people have watched. The space's priority of engaging with people is the purpose of the free Purell, free chips and of course free water from the water cooler.

New LaPierre Office is a set influenced by business office aesthetics to both pay tribute to the late 90s' idea of talking about a television show at work the day after it aired and to serve me as a reminder that I am watching Orange Is The New Black not for my own enjoyment but rather as a task. That isn't to imply that I didn't enjoy watching the series just that I needed to take the task seriously and complete it on schedule.

Through watching the series and discussing it with others I have been given the opportunity to do some self reflecting. I have become more critical of my viewing habits and have come to the realisation of just how rewarding it is to watch a show that doesn't immediately appeal to me.

I performed at Doored 16 and had a job interview and had a nice break but it's good to be back. At the Welcome Back Celebration, I ate some chips and used Purell to clean my hands.It was a nice treat.
