i'm a musician, producer and visual artist based in Toronto, Canada. In 1995, i launched my solo project and so far have released 5 recordings (8 more on the way. yes... EIGHT more) ranging from post-industrial rock to minimalist trip-hop to dark pop.
i've also been the drummer for Rhea's Obsession, Priya Thomas and Jonathan Seet.
i also love remixing orignal material. i've done work for Elysium, Shaolin Temple of Boom and am currently messing around with Byrne/Eno, Peter Gabriel and NIN.

Change is the only constant...
no 'band', and my personal history is too convoluted to get into.
it's all in the music, and there's plenty more to come...
if you really need to know more, send me an email.
but please, only if you're serious.
played live for over 20 years in many bands.
currently not gigging (can't afford it anymore), just concentrating on studio projects.
hmmm. this is always a loaded gun. the stuff that influences me is not necessarily directly reflective of the work i produce. but, here are some things that have moved me over the years:
Shriekback, Massive Attack, PJ Harvey, Django Reinhardt, Peter Gabriel, King Crimson (old & new), Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Elbow, David Bowie, NIN, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Djivan Gasparian, Brian Eno, Steve Reich, Talvin Singh, XTC, Neil Finn, Tool, Will Oldham, and thousands of others...
whatever works, which is not much these days, but i kick around on a Mac with Nuendo, Ableton Live, Reason and tons of plug-ins.
be honest. it doesn't matter WHAT you make, but for f**k sake... be HONEST.
yeah, i'm cranky, crusty and been doing this a long time, but i LOVE real music. got something to say? not full of s**t? let's talk.
