With over 20 years of career experience Suzanne has represented film, television, and performing arts producers and artists at various stages of the presentation cycle including unit publicity, festival launches, theatrical and broadcast launches, season announcements and production openings. After getting a BFA in Theatre from York University she began her career working in film festival and distribution publicity at VKPR, contributing to campaigns for FoxSearchlight Pictures in Canada, the Hot Docs Film Festival and representing films at the Toronto International Film Festival. After launching RedEye Media in 2005, she quickly became an industry mainstay with a continued focus on film and television, expanding her practice to include unit publicity and joining IA667.

I have been working with Suzanne for almost 10 years now, first when I was Managing Director at Crow’s Theatre, where she was a key partner in helping us launch the Streetcar Crowsnest facility and brand it as a must-visit destination in Toronto. We continue to work together at Canadian Stage and she remains a trusted collaborator.  Suzanne has constantly impressed me with her passion for the arts sector, her deep commitment to advancing the work of artists, and her unparalleled knowledge of our industry.  She is someone I know I can continually count on and a true leader in her field. – Monica Esteves - Executive Director, Canadian Stage

In the midst of the pandemic, when I had started my role at Obsidian, we went way out on a limb with 21 BLACK FUTURES and went from being a theatre company to a screen production company working with the CBC – there were so many firsts I couldn’t count them. Not only did Suzanne handle the media relations on the project with all the passion and intelligence she is known for, with her wide-ranging experience across performing arts and screen mediums, she also helped us navigate the move into the world of working with a broadcaster. The work we do at Obsidian also requires sensitivity and cultural awareness, which Suzanne always brings to the table, along with palpable commitment and care. She is an important ally to our company. – Mumbi Tindyebwa Otu - Artistic Director, Obsidian Theatre
