Who am I?

I am a Montreal-based composer producer coming from a background in jazz, having graduated from McGill University’s jazz programme on piano. Playing keyboards full time professionally for a decade, I had the opportunity to develop my musical voice and craft as a player and composer / arranger in Montreal's music scene and beyond: 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 such as saxophonist Lionel Martin, drummer Bruno Tocanne (Trio Résistances). And from the USA: singer Emma Frank, and drummer Dylan Fusillo from Antibalas and the FELA broadway show). And I had an important mentor in the lineage of jazz with the incredible Mike Longo in NYC.

In late 2015, I embarked on a new challenge which had always interested me: Cinema.  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 worked in the many-faceted world of film and media. My collaborators include the CBC, Bunbury Films, HMH, and many independent creators. Gritty, creative, collaborative, a problem-solver ever willing to find solutions, and to always aim high. That is who I am.
