Noel was born and raised in Newfoundland and moved to Calgary in 1986 to complete a BSc at the University of Calgary. He attended his first improv course in January 2012. This sparked an insatiable interest in improv that led to more classes and workshops with The Kinkonauts. He has enjoyed playing with a number of house teams over the last 5 years including STU, CUB, Come By Chance, and Squadball. Although wrongly accused by family members for undergoing a mid-life crisis, Noel is firmly committed to the improv journey.
During the day, Noel is a mild mannered IT Account Manager, juggling time between work, a supportive spouse, teenage kids, and a dusty treadmill.
