Meet Me At The Stairs is a profile piece that features my wife, an essential emergency worker for Toronto EMS. We’ve been living in isolation from each other for 80+ days and even though we are still living in the same house, being so close but still so far comes with its own set of challenges.

Created during lockdown, the film explores the anxiety that comes with being an essential worker during a worldwide pandemic and coping with the sacrifices you must make to keep your family members safe.

Director’s Vision

We’ve all had unique experiences because of COVID-19 and I’m sure we all have stories to tell.

My wife Lindsay has continued to go to work as an essential worker with Toronto EMS and although she’s not technically in the front lines, because of my compromised immune system, it has made our home life interesting for the last 80+ days.

I wanted to find a way to show my appreciation for her as well as all other essential workers that were and still are making sacrifices, not only at work but at home as well.

This is a glimpse into the sacrifice that Lindsay has made to keep our family safe.
