Hi.

To quote Ólafur Arnalds, I like to make music.

You can find me at Crew Studios in North Vancouver where I’m the manager and an engineer. It’s a comfortable and well-equipped place to record, have spotting sessions and review cues.

In songwriting, some favourites include Sade, The Police, Sheryl Crow, Bill Withers, Finley Quaye and Peter Gabriel. Sometimes I describe my songs as atmospheric soul rock.

In composing, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, Cliff Martinez, Daniel Pemberton, Mychael Danna, Clint Mansell, Carly Paradis, Brian Reitzell, Geoff Barrow, Ben Salisbury, Mac Quayle and Hans Zimmer.

One or two days a week I’m at Highlife Records in East Vancouver where I’ve worked for many years. We turn people onto artists like Lhasa, Cheikh Lo, Manu Chao and labels like Daptone, World Circuit, Soul Jazz and No Format.

SCORING DEMOS

Deadly Class

Password: a-dub

Noticed a pilot was being made and thought to submit this to the filmmakers. Music, sound design, and needle drop choices from the 80s.

Kubrick: Meeting the Monolith

Password: a-dub

Blasphemous to add modern music to a Kubrick film?
Perhaps.

Snatch: Fight Ya For It (accordion and congas)

Password: a-dub

Felt some accordion could augment Pitt’s gypsy character in this scene.

Français Connection Car Chase

Password: a-dub

As you may recall, this well known scene has no score, and works brilliantly.
