I have been an actor, and director in the industry for 30 years, doing TV commercials, theatre, film/TV roles. For the past 12 years I have been on the teaching faculty of the Canadore College Acting for Stage & Screen Program (North Bay, ON). Almost 4 years ago I almost died and I became severely mutilated. While still in intensive care, I began writing Eighteen Degrees because I knew I would never work again as an actor in a normal capacity. I now had to create and promote my own work by telling the most incredible story of my life. I now have the opportunity to continue my career but from a completely unique perspective. I see Eighteen Degrees as the first incarnation of a long line of life’s work, the only work I can imagine doing.
