About

Who am I?

I am a Montreal-based composer producer coming from a background in jazz. I studied English Literature and Philosophy at McGill University, but could not stay away from the piano, so I transferred into the music faculty. There I became steeped in a rich history of composition, arranging, and improvisation with amazing mentors.

My musical voice comes from my  experience. I blend acoustic and electric, scoring and studio production, as well as written and improvised. I go after a sound that conveys an emotion, a meaning. There are many paths to get there.

While playing keyboards full time professionally, I had the honour of opening for Herbie Hancock, Trombone Shorty, and playing keyboards for Jacob Lusk (American idol) and Soul legend Dorothy Moore. I also recorded with incredible artists from Europe (Trio Résistances) and the USA: singer Emma Frank, and drummer Dylan Fusillo from Antibalas). And I had an important mentor in the lineage of jazz with Mike Longo in New York, which expanded my understanding of jazz.

In late 2015, I embarked on a new challenge.  I mentored with film / tv composer Nicholas Schnier in Hamilton and got my first scoring gigs with Makila film collective here in Montreal. Since then I have received commissions from the CBC, HMH, and collaborated with many creators and producers. Gritty, creative, collaborative, a problem-solver ever willing to find solutions, and to always aim high. That is who I am.
