Hey.

To quote Ólafur Arnalds, I like to make music.

You can find me pushing sliders and making coffee at Crew Studios in North Vancouver. It’s a comfortable and well-equipped place to record, spot, 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, Terence Blanchard, Bernard Herrmann, Geoff Barrow, Ben Salisbury, Jeff Russo 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.
