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 CBC across Canada, Stingray Radio's Smooth Jazz channel (formerly Galaxie), The Jewel, Jazz.FM91, and many other radio stations in Ontario.

My new EP is now available via the "Music" menu above. In Ottawa, CD copies are available at Sunrise Records in Carlingwood Mall and Compact Music in the Glebe. There is a sample video below and clips in the audio player to the right. Be sure to visit my Youtube channel for rehearsal footage of the recording sessions. Thank you for visiting!

"Blue. Green. Aquamarine." Sampler

My last recording, "The Sand in My Shoes", is also available at the "Music" link above. Reviews and the story of its creation can be found there as well. In Ottawa, CD copies be purchased at Carlingwood Mall and Compact Music in the Glebe.
