​Mandi is an actor, writer, director, singer, musician, artist and independent producer that calls Toronto, Ontario home. Whether it’s on stage, on screen, or in grandma’s living room, she has dedicated her life to the art of storytelling.

Upon completing her Pochinko Clown intensives at the University of Alberta, Mandi appeared in a variety of projects ranging from Canadian comedy-drama Private Eyes, Amazon Prime's hit series The Boys, and Bruce McCulloch's Young Drunk Punk. Additionally, she is known throughout Western Canada for impersonating Bernadette from The Big Bang Theory in musical theatre parodies.

Her most recent credits include Drink Up and Good Grief, two short dramatic films that she wrote and directed, as well as The Fardy Brothers, a 7 minute mockumentary in which she co-produced, co-directed, co-wrote and performed in as a part of the 2019 48 Hour Film Project (Toronto). Mandi has also recently finished writing her second feature Feeling Unreal, a mental health-focused film, and is now writing and developing her next feature Metagame, an action/adventure DnD-focused feature film. 

 

When she’s not writing or performing, she can be found rummaging for treasure in thrift stores, solving puzzles in escape rooms or throwing plastic spoons during screenings of The Room.

"...Maxwell and Gabel shine onstage, with strong performances and a command of the swiftly moving dialogue. They have a chemistry between them, and serious acting chops in their own right.”

"[Mandi] was wonderful - when she sang Climb Every Mountain I got goosebumps and shivers up my spine all at the same time. It was moving and positively thrilling and everyone went “WOW” when she was done. No doubt she is loaded with talent - she can certainly sing, but she was also the best female dancer that night as well, plus she can act. She possesses a powerful voice in a compact package."
