Todd Houseman is a Nehiyo (Cree) mixed blood actor, improviser, and writer from Edmonton, Alberta (Amiskwaciy). He performed with Rapid Fire Theatre from 2009-2017, and returned to the ensemble in 2021. His work focuses on decolonization by prioritizing indigenous narratives through satire, political commentary, and storytelling. Todd is a graduate of the acting program at the National Theatre School of canada but his studies were cut short due to the virus. He is the co-writer/producer/star (with Ben Gorodetsky) of the cultural comedy web series Folk Lordz, and the co-creator of the play Whiteface (with Lady Vanessa Cardona). In his free time, he enjoys building masks, forging knives, or being in the forests of western Alberta.
