Story
Tagline
Makes things for groups of people bent on proving good ideas are entertaining.
Introduction
I direct Small Wooden Shoe, a (mostly) theatre company that engages with the world in a curious, critical manner. We create events and spaces that reduce alienation while admitting difference, enchantment and pleasure. Like Upper Toronto, science fiction design proposal and new versions of old stories.

I also organize, facilitate and host meetings, conferences and other ways people come together and coach people who make presentations to other people.
