ABOUT ME

Hi there! Welcome to my site.


My name is Olivia (she/her), and I am a Canadian performer, director and producer.


I hold a BFA in Drama from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, where I studied at Playwrights Horizons Theatre School and The New Studio on Broadway. I also hold a minor in Philosophy.


At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, I co-founded Artists in Residence, a theatrical platform supporting artists' mental health by providing opportunities for connection and social engagement. 


Driven by a love of collaboration and community building, I work to create spaces where artists feel supported, seen, and respected for their individuality. With every new project, I strive to embody a spirit of openness, discovery, and joy!
