A Bit About Me
Born and raised in Canada, I fell in love with the stage as a young girl first appearing in Annie. I toured the Canadian Fringe circuit with a collaborative group before heading to NYC. Along with acting in several theatre and film roles following my training at The American Musical & Dramatic Academy, I co-wrote and performed in RANDOM around the New York Comedy Club circuit. We produced, co-wrote & performed in an off-Broadway sitcom showcase for MTV.
In LA, while acting in various film, TV, and commercial projects, I DJ'd for the Hollywood radio station ARN.
I write and perform poetry, have written a screenplay, and am developing a series.
No matter who I met or I went in Hollywood, the stage has always been my favorite place to perform. Some of my favorite roles on stage have been as Eve in Arthur Miller's CREATION OF THE WORLD & OTHER BUSINESS, Anya in Checkov's THE CHERRY ORCHARD, Kate in THE MIRACLE WORKER, and Gabriella in BOEING BOEING.
Since moving to the Sarasota area, I have performed as various leads in the local theaters, and starred in the one-woman show BLOWN SIDEWAYS THROUGH LIFE, Backstage at The Players Centre For Performing Arts. Prior to the pandemic, I worked most regularly under the direction of her local mentor, Elliott Raines on the Two Chairs productions of A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE on the main stage at The Players, and as Juror #8 in the Backstage Theatre's production of 12 ANGRY JURORS, at The Players Centre For Performing Arts.
I became a brand ambassador for Rebel Robinson Photography in 2020, and in early 2021 I joined the Theatre Odyssey's board of directors. Theatre Odyssey gave me the opportunity to direct two and act in one of the radio plays for their 2021 Ten Minute Student Play Festival.
I created ACTING DISTANT early on in the Covid-19 Pandemic when the world seemed to have shut down. I wanted to create a network for actors, directors, and writers - a virtual playground for readings, writing & workshops. With ACTING DISTANT I produced 46 play readings with 32 different scripts and a YouTube Showcase with well over 100 participants in just over a year.
As a student of Yoga for well over two decades, late in 2021 I decided to take the plunge 7 deepen my practice by training to be a registered Yoga teacher. This was by far my best decision of 2021, and has taken me into 2022 with a perspective that can never waiver. For as I have learned, "once you experience the joy of living in beauty and love, you no longer find anything captivating about suffering." The Power of Yoga, Nischala Joy Devi. TRY CARRIE'S CLASS
