NEWS & EVENTS
Here is what I have been up to recently...
Mackenzie House & Colborne Lodge Ongoing
I work at Mackenzie House Museum & Colborne Lodge in Toronto.
William Lyon Mackenzie was the first mayor of Toronto.
His ill-fated Rebellion in 1837 changed Canada forever.
In October of 2014 I created and performed the dramatic content for our NECROPOLIS TOUR.
Here are a few pictures...
