Bio

Past – Born and raised in Halifax, NS, Koumbie has been passionate about the arts her entire life. As a dancer at The Maritime Conservatory and then at Halifax Dance, she reached the intensive training program level 3 before leaving to focus on the drama club at her school. There she played roles ranging from Juliet to Shylock and won the Castalia Award for excellence in performing arts. Koumbie spent a year in Montreal at Concordia University in the Theatre and Development program before leaving and moving to Toronto to pursue a career in the real world.

Present – Currently splitting her time between Halifax and Toronto, Koumbie has gone behind the camera and started directing. In 2015 she wrote and directed her first short film, Message Deleted, which premiered in Toronto at the ReelWorld Film Festival. In the last year Koumbie has directed two more short films, a feature film, and an episode of broadcast television that will air in 2017. In this same year she has been in reoccurring roles on the TV series Sex & Violence, Mr. D, and Studio Black! as well as a number of local short film projects.

Future – Koumbie has a number of projects in development with her filmmaking partner Taylor Olson, including a short film about an alien with depression and a webseries about road-tripping through Nova Scotia, and writing a feature version of their award winning short ‘Hustle & Heart’. She is also auditioning for film/tv projects that interest her.
