My career as a musician, songwriter/composer and producer/engineer has spanned over forty years. My love of music began as a child when I began studying classical piano through the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. I later continued my studies of music theory and composition with University of Toronto professor Alexander Rapaport and Julia Galieva.
I’ve written and recorded a number of internationally released albums and compilations on vinyl and CD, which are now being made available via download and streaming. I’ve performed live in concert with Santers and Triumph and co-billed venues with Ozzy Ozbourne, Johnny Winter, Blue Oyster Cult, Rick Derringer, Kim Mitchell and Golden Earring.
As a producer and studio musician I’ve had the privilege of working with a variety of talented , independent musicians, and I’m always honoured to be able to share my knowledge and experience with young, aspiring artists.
Presently, I’m working on finalizing and releasing new solo recording projects along with remastering and remixing some of my earlier recordings that I feel deserve a reboot.
