I’m from from the hamlet of Livelong Saskatchewan. I graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a double honours degree in Political Studies and Economics and subsequently attended the Film Production Program at the University of British Columbia finishing in 2017. I have lived and worked across Canada as an oil worker, tree planter, farm worker, stone mason, musician and filmmaker.
