About Me

My  name is Keara and I grew up in Vancouver, B.C. I graduated from the University of Victoria in 2009 with a B.F.A in Theatre.

Now that we’ve gotten the boring stuff out of the way, I can really tell you about myself! Immediately after graduating university I moved to Dublin, Ireland. My mum is originally from Dublin so after flying over countless times throughout the years to visit family I finally made the decision to move. For six months. To work in a bar and ‘have the craic’ as they say. That turned into three years.

I did indeed work in a bar and ‘have the craic’ for a couple months. Then, I fell in love, and everything changed. I no longer wanted to return home and chose instead to look for work in my career field: the theatre. I started volunteering in the Abbey Theatre, The National Theatre of Ireland. I was then offered a marketing internship, things continued to progress from there, and I ended up with a full time position, while also working part time for another theatre.

I was traveling to other european countries as much I could around work, usually about 3 a year, but I began to want more. I was craving a nomadic life; I wanted to travel for longer, to explore more fully, to immerse myself more deeply. So- I’m hitting the proverbial ‘road’ and going on a long term traveling adventure.

While on the ‘road’ I want to continue to focus and expand on my love for the theatre. I plan to get involved with international theatre groups, whether through fundraising, marketing/press work, or theatre-in-education. I am extremely passionate about community engagement with the theatre and look forward to utilizing my skills, enriching my education, and writing about my experiences.

Thank you for reading and I look forward to sharing my travel theatrics with you 🙂
