HOME: Welcome


I grew up in Toronto, honing my craft in one of the most musically productive cities in Canada. I've been composing soundtracks for television, film, and multimedia for over 30 years. My soundtracks have garnered two ITVA Gold Medal Awards, a GEMINI Nomination, and a handful of other genre specific media awards. I'm well versed in a wide array of current music styles and genres, and have scored everything from comedy and documentary to drama and horror.  I've also enjoyed a career as an arranger, producer, and studio session bassist, and have held tenure on faculty at both Ryerson Polytechnic University in Toronto and Canadore College here in North Bay. I'm an active member of ASCAP (U.S.), SOCAN (Canada), and SCGC. I moved North in 2001 and definitely love the lifestyle of this locale! Thank you in advance for visiting this site! Please feel free to contact me with any questions  regarding my vocation or advice regarding your soundtrack needs. I'm a dedicated team player and I'm here to help!

"One of the greatest joys in life for me is that of engaging in a creative project, solving challenges I've not met before.  As artists, we draw on our own unique colour palettes to paint a picture and, thankfully, there is never just one right way to do that. Creativity is blending collective experience with a hunger for the unknown.  As famous composer Aaron Copeland once suggested, the only way to move forward into that unknown is "to leave one's ego and self judgement outside the room." Visual media lends itself well to this process as we, the composer, can become what we see on screen, leaving our 'other' self outside until such time as its opinion is invited.

Film score creation is a team sport. I thoroughly enjoy working within a team or group to reach a given goal. We are all 'film makers' within our particular discipline and find success in the mutual sharing of our insights. Among my own team members, BEN LEGGETT, (above), is an invaluable asset to my process as a fellow music editor, engineer, sound designer, and partner in crime where soundtracks are involved. His second opinion is always welcomed and valued! A film or television production excels when all participants are allowed to shine while still maintaining respect and regard for one another.

A composer must become one with his gear. With all the tools and instruments I have at my disposal, it's easy to become overwhelmed with possibilities. It's for this reason that every project requires a block of time to develop a palette of sounds and textures. The choices are informed by you, the director / producer. In turn, My facility is wired and equipped for remote online live communications and coproduction. I work in both Logic Pro X and ProTools file formats.

My job isn't finished with the last written note. I'll go where ever I'm needed to insure the music stems translate properly at their final destination. It's important to remain open to the delivery spec of any mix facility downstream. I want to help make your job as easy and enjoyable as possible. The spirit of cooperation can make all the difference to the final soundtrack. 


Coming up are selected audio examples of my scores. For VIDEO  score samples, please contact me directly, thank you.
