“ Good of the Camera to bring some light and happiness during this difficult time. Currently I am practicing social distancing at my home in Scarborough. Since the outbreak began, I have been unable to work as I am an actor and the entertainment industry has been shut down. I also had an upcoming show with Canadian Stage in High Park this summer that has been cancelled. It’s been a tough go so far but I am keeping my energy up by staying active indoors doing workouts on zoom with my cousins, going for walks, and keeping in touch with other performers I am reading plays and practicing online. Lots has moved online and it’s exciting to see everyone continue to find ways to create. I’ve also been keeping busy by trying to do something creative everyday.
