I was born and raised in the most multiculturally diverse city on the planet, Toronto, 12 years after my favourite album, Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue was released.
I’m a former professional musician, however many years ago I traded in the hand to mouth existence that is the life of a working musician for the promise of benefits and financial stability that a good day gig has to offer.
I first studied music in college and then later electronics engineering, which has led to a very successful career.
Over the years I have been very fortunate given that my work has afforded me the opportunity to live and travel throughout much of this great country. Along the way, I met my wonderful wife while I was living and working in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut for many years.
In my spare time I of course enjoy music, reading non-fiction and biographies as well as travelling throughout Canada and America.
