Hey, thanks for stopping by.
I'm a musician who trys to look at the bright side of life. I believe my songs reflect my vision.
I've always had the music in me. From church choir as a child, to theatre as a youth, to singer-songwriter as a young man and continuing today.
In fact, to pay my bills, I've been working 'daytime jobs' in the infamous Entertainment District on neon-lit Granville Street in the heart of downtown Vancouver for years. It's a District that harbours a lot of inspiration for songs! When you hear someone say "I've seen it all!" well, ... I have!
I write and sing about things that are real to me. I'm a happy person and feel bad for unhappy people. I hope that hearing my music can make them happy!
Today, I count myself as one of the music rebels who created indie/alt.
Songwriting is my natural!
