I am a producer who also composes original music. I am a guitarist, percussionist, vocalist and arranger. I use additional musicians (mainly vocalists) and sample based orchestration to achieve many of my original compositions.

Biography

I started studying music at a young age, beginning formal training in drums and percussion at age 11. At age 13 I began playing the guitar and once in high school at age 15 I began taking vocal classes. I've played in bands since I was 15 and continue to do so to this day. At age 17 I picked up a digital recording system and began experimenting with recording and production and quickly fell in love with the craft. I then decided to try and get into the the Music Industry Arts program at Fanshawe College, which is known for it's high standards of learning and tough admissions. I thankfully made it in to the college upon my first attempt and at age 18 moved to London, Ontario to study under the brilliant production teachers Jack Richardson and later Kevin Doyle. I graduated two years later and received the "best music production" award which was a great way to finish my time there. I now run a media studio with my business partner Ethan Rising called Winding Path Media and play in the band "Crash Familiar"
