He has appeared in various Canadian television series including Northwood and The Rez. He wrote the film, Moccasin Flats which was an official selection at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival and later adapted for television on the Showcase Television Network.
In the summers of 2008, 2009 and 2010, he produced and hosted the CBC Radio One radio documentary series, Revision Quest, which explored and challenged the various stereotypes about North American indigenous peoples.
His semi-autobiographical one-man play, “Tales of an Urban Indian”, in which he explored themes of growing up as an indigenous First Nations Native American, was performed by him on a city bus driving on the streets of Barrie, Ontario in 2009. A second run of performances in Barrie took place in early 2011 in preparation for taking the show on the road to other cities.
