About Me

I am, presumably, one of the rare American refugees.  As an American citizen, I couldn’t sponsor my partner for immigration purposes.  It took us four years to find a place where we could be safe and together – much bowing to that big red maple leaf and the people who embrace her.  My partner, thank heavens, was able to make a Protected Person (refugee) claim  here in Canada and we’ve just won Permanent Residence!  We can stay!  All of this makes me an American Refugee.  O, Canada! There are 40,000 COUPLES, still in the US, just like us.

After a nail-biting career in Hollywood, I am a professional arts educator, performer and a departmental director at the largest professional theatre for young people in Canada.
