Hi! I'm Mandi. I'm an LGBTQ+ Canadian screenwriter, union actor, director, singer, musician, independent producer, script coverage-giver and acting coach that specializes in Pochinko clown, character acting, and making a fool of myself.
I currently reside in Toronto, Ontario with my fat cat Marlo. I'm passionate about storytelling, mental health and the esoteric masterpiece that is The Room.
When it comes to my vibe, think Kristen Bell, Zooey Deschanel, Jim Carrey, Amy Poehler, Bryce Dallas Howard and Sailor Moon, all in one!
