A Bit About Me...

The What--Composer/guitarist

The Where--Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA

The Why (Composing music)--I like to express ideas and feelings instrumentally, in a variety of musical styles. On older projects, I did this primarily through words and music.

The How--I began writing and recording songs with lyrics in many styles to pitch to publishers. Upon discovering that I was not a "mainstream" type of artist and that there is an over abundance of singer-songwriters out there, I now focus on...(see next question).

What is my music like? Nowadays, it's instrumental, mostly guitar-based music encompassing Latin, World and Jazz flavours. I write economical compositions with twists and turns that have a sense of purpose and direction. I liked being surprised by the music I listen to and I endeavor to do the same when I write.

Have I studied music? I am a University of Ottawa music graduate who studied classical guitar & composition but I am always learning.

Who are my influences? From Calypso to 20th century orchestral composers, vintage film/TV composers, Pat Metheny, George Benson, the Beatles, Frank Zappa, Paul Simon and a good, healthy dose of rock. Yes, there is a range here...


I am a registered member of SOCAN (The Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada).
