I was born in Richmond BC but raised in Moberly Lake BC. It is a small north eastern community in the Peace River region and it is mixed with Dunne-Za, Woodlands Cree & Saulteau first nations. The journey as a performer began as a young child. However, I did not know that the art's would be a career for me.
I sang with family for fun and as a teenager I traveled the Pow-Wow trail and learned both contemporary and traditional songs. It was not until my young adult age where I discovered my passion for storytelling and singing. I traveled to South America to work with the aboriginal peoples and I lived in the deep jungles of Guyana.
They welcomed me into their community with an eveing around a bonfire telling stories and the history of their people through song and dance. They had such a natural way of expressing their voice and culture that it inspired me to find this voice within myself. When I came back to Canada I searched for programs for the performing arts.
I applied to Full Circle: First Nations Performance in Vancouver BC which gave me the opportunity to learn how to use my voice. The two year program had changed my life in such a way that I knew the career I wanted was to be in the arts. I began to get work in theatre and short films for acting and through this experience I further discovered that I wanted to build my skills in Multi-Media. I stumbled upon the Aboriginal Multi-Media Arts Program, which is an intensive six month training for Photography, Graphic & Web design and Video Production. These classes would help me to develop a business of my own in the industry.
