Current

Living on Vancouver Island with my wonderful wife and partner in all things. Songcraft has always been a part of me, and now I am devoted to it. I have studied many genres up close. I’m an adept drum and synth programmer, Studio One and ProTools HD operator, currently learning Davinci Resolve. All-round musician/arranger/singer, I play half a dozen instruments  pretty well and I love to write and sing songs. I’m just at the start of my education in video editing, and looking forward to creating video content for myself and artists.
