Let me be your ears. I offer consulting and production services in Sound Design, Engineering, Editing, and Mixing.
Digital or print, I provide assets like album design and layout, remasters/restorations, tour posters, merch, and other promotional tools.
Websites built from the ground up, refreshed, or repaired. Interactive press kits, applications, and interactive promotional tools.
A passionate high schooler immersed in music, I spent my weekends at Toronto's The Opera House and iconic Big Bop venues working for a concert operator. While obtaining a degree in Radio & Television Arts ('07) from Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson), I interned with Sony BMG Music Canada and Red Ink Music in their A&R and Marketing departments. There I worked with digital and administrative assets for their artist roster and properties such as Canadian Idol.
Starting out my career as a freelancer, I began to mix with other kinds of artists: filmmakers. Commissioned for post-sound work on a variety of projects and mediums I had the opportunity to design and mix sound for Secret Location's interactive launch film, engineer for Moneen's JUNO nominated Live DVD, provide music supervision for feature film, and sound design and mixing on independent films.
In 2010 Six Shooter Records commissioned me as an independent contractor to provide asset development and consulting for their publicists, marketing, and operations staff. To this day I regularly provide them with digital, interactive content and consulting on technical development and support. I'm pleased to have worked with them for over a decade and has lead me to provide services with other industry leaders like Paper Bag Records, Peermusic, Aakuluk Music, and more recently with the explosively growing We Are Busy Bodies.
As a local musician performing in the GTA for years, I broadened my reach and embarked on two European tours in support of my recordings. My experience booking and performing in a half dozen countries across Europe and The UK has provided me with a unique perspective to artistry outside the studio and production facilities. It also provided me with a wider scope of the assets required for tour support.
Durham College's School of Media Art and Design had me share my experience by teaching courses in Social Media and Web Design. I continued my post secondary work with an advisory role with Toronto Metropolitan University's (formerly Ryerson) Professional Communications program as Technology Advisor. I provided workshops and support to bachelors and masters students of The Creative School program on production software and hardware including audio, video, photography, illustration, motion graphics, and programming with HTML and CSS.
With the growing popularity of podcasting I teamed up with the talented producers from Antica Productions. I was privileged to edit, mix, and master a dozen episodes of The Munk Debates Podcast and The Munk Dialogues and edit the Agha Khan Museum's This Being Human.
In 2019 I began consulting and preparing art for Toronto label We Are Busy Bodies. With original releases and vintage reissues, I oversaw a majority of the label's recent vinyl releases including records from Limblifter, Wide Mouth Mason, and vintage icons such as Tom Dissevelt, Barney Wilen, Nucleus, Eboni Band, The Drive, and many more. In 2022 I became acting Creative Director for the label and continue to offer consulting and development services to select clients.
