I'm a guitarist from London, Ontario, Canada. I play live and do studio work with a variety of area artists and bands. I also lead my own trio, which plays improvised instrumental music. In 2019 I was voted into the Forest City London Music Awards Fantasy Band as London's favourite guitarist, and won in the Jazz Instrumental Solo/Group category in 2022 and 2023, having been nominated twice before. I'm a busy hired gun available for live work, recording sessions (in-person and remote sessions), and private lessons. I have two albums of original instrumental music under my own name. You can get in touch with me on the contact page or via Facebook. You can download and stream my music at Bandcamp. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Jazz Performance and Musicology from York University, a Master's Degree in Musicology from McMaster University, and a PhD in Communications and Media Studies from the Institute for Communications Studies at the University of Leeds.  Please like my Facebook page and follow me Instagram. Thanks for visiting!
