Composer. Teacher. Writer. Voice Actor.
That sums it up quite well, actually. I’m a freelance composer living in Winnipeg, MB, Canada focusing on choral and instrumental works for ensembles.
I teach Music and English at Lord Selkirk Regional Comprehensive Secondary School (*whew!*), specifically Jazz, Music History, Band and Composition. If you want to change the world, the first place you start is the school :)
I’ve been writing since before I can remember. My first story was about Mega Man and how his group of friends went to stop the sinister Dr. Wily while enduring incredible hardship and tests of their strength. It was written and illustrated entirely in marker when I was five. Now, I’ve been writing texts for choral music, poetry, a radio play, short stories and a long-form manuscript that I’ve been sculpting since 2009. It’s an exciting time to make art!
Voice acting is a new foray for me. I hosted a podcast called Into the Score about the in-depth study of music from video games, then acted in a radio play which I wrote and directed called The Constant.
All of these things come down to one of my most intense passions: Telling stories. The story binds us together. It teaches us about ourselves and the world around us. It shines the light into dark corners of our hearts and minds, revealing that which has remained hidden with or without our knowledge.
I post about music, science, my work and the world around us. Conversation is the best part of posting content, so don’t be shy! I look forward to meeting you :)
