“When I write music for a film…I’m part of a team of artists. So I think like a filmmaker more than a composer.”
You can find me pushing sliders and making coffee at Crew Studios – a vibey and well-equipped studio in North Vancouver.
I’ve scored several short films and currently I’m scoring a previously released feature as a demo.
The score for Tom Cavanagh’s short film Tom and Grant was nominated for a Leo.
I’m also working on a bunch of new songs that I plan to release this summer and fall. Song titles include: 45 Kool Ade, Singularity, Ocean Walls, Lesson Again…
Before the pandemic, you could also find me one or two days a week at Highlife Records in East Vancouver where I’ve worked for many years. We turn people onto artists like Lhasa, Cheikh Lo, Manu Chao, James Hunter, and labels like Daptone, World Circuit, Soul Jazz and No Format.

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