Meet the Creators


Eli McIlveen is the creator, playwright and director of Alba Salix.

Eli has been recording strange noises since he first “borrowed” his dad’s cassette player as a kid. During his five-year stint at CKMS-FM (University of Waterloo), he was a producer, actor and occasional writer for the weekly comedy series Philler, and went on to host a weekly radio theatre showcase. Since then he’s been sound designer and operator for a raft of theatre productions in Toronto.

He’s also interviews producer for Radio Drama Revival, the audio drama showcase podcast, a dialogue editor for Aural Stage Studios and 11th Hour Audio Productions, and has appeared in Jim Robbie and the Wanderers, Radiation World and What’s the Frequency? playing a variety of humans and invertebrates.


Sean Howard began as a line producer on Season 1 of Alba Salix. He was responsible for managing the cast, setting schedules and coordinating budgets, as well as fundraising, photography and marketing.

Sean is a recovering juggler, and has dabbled in theatre as both a performer and a lighting designer. He is new to the audio world, but is a podcast addict of the highest order.

Sean brings his 20+ years of marketing and advertising experience to Alba Salix. He co-directed The Axe & Crown, and is a writer on Season 2 of Alba.
