The Canadian Leaque of Composers

Playwrights Guild of Canada

Canadian Aboriginal Music Award-2008


I have been an active member of the arts in Canada and abroad for the past 40 years working as a composer, arranger, music director, conductor, playwright, artistic director and record producer.

Here are some things that are happening right now.

I have just completed a score for  a beautiful documentary shot in South Africa titled: The Thinking Garden, Directed by Christine Welsh.

In late December I received notice of a major award from the play writing division of the Canada Council. The funds are allowing me to focus on researching and writing a new play based on the Chilcotin war of 1864. I am well into the research and story development of the piece,

I have been begun rehearsing the Sooke Community Choir for our upcoming concerts we are calling: A Celtic Christmas. As I well, I have begun to rehearse Victoria’s Crystal Singers for a Christmas concert-yet to be titled.


Thanks for the visit. Much appreciated.
