“Receiving professional theatrical developmental help through RISER has been a fabulous opportunity wherein I’ve met many fantastic individuals and learned the ins and outs of theatrical production. I’m excited to pass this knowledge on and continue developing the Edmonton arts scene through my work and by aiding other artists as much as I can.”
