I am a composer/guitarist from Ottawa, Canada. I write mostly instrumental, guitar-based music crossing between smooth jazz and Latin. My music has received considerable airplay on many CBC programs across Canada, is presently in rotation on Stingray Radio's Smooth Jazz channel (formerly Galaxie), and has been played on The Jewel and other community radio stations in Ontario. Information, clips and reviews for each recording are listed under the "Music" menu above.

My new EP is being released on September 8, 2015. It is called,
"Blue. Green. Aquamarine." The artwork, a video sampler, and other videos featuring rehearsal footage and moments of the final tracks, are right below. Thank you for listening!

1.) Then She Danced
2.) Never Been Better
