Jeff has been a regular mainstage performer, teacher & director with Vancouver TheatreSports League since 2000. Shows he’s created include Bad Men, Improviso Flamenco and Open Mike. Jeff has directed the Rookie League and Gorilla Theatre, and is a member of the ICI teaching faculty. He was selected to represent Vancouver at the 2017 International TheatreSports Conference in Dubai, and is on the planning committee for the 2019 conference that will be held in Vancouver.
Jeff was first introduced to improv at the University of Calgary by his acting teacher, Keith Johnstone (creator of TheatreSports and author of IMPRO). Jeff joined the Loose Moose Theatre Company that same year and has never looked back. The following year, Jeff began teaching specialty courses in Improv through Status and Mask at the U of C. Jeff relocated to Vancouver in 2000 where he joined the Vancouver TheatreSports League. In 2004 Jeff formed The Stretch Mouth’d Rascalls who were one of the first groups to perform and build a following at Ryan Stiles’ Up Front Theatre in Bellingham, where they performed Gorilla Theatre. In 2009 along with Veena Sood, Jeff founded Truth Be Told Theatre, a Vancouver company dedicated to performing Keith format, The Life Game.
Jeff continues to share his unique perspective, bringing together his experience in theatre (multi Jessie award nominee) and music (debut CD being released in 2014), teaching improv courses regularly at VTSL and privately.
