------------------------------  
Born in Cornwall Ont. Started playing in bands from the age of 13 years old. My influences have been The Beatles, Paul McCartney in particular. However other bands such as Boston, Foreigner, Billy Joel, Boston and Neil Young have played a big roll in my development as a musician. Even though I have written a few songs, my real passion is performing live. Currently I manage two pro bands in Ottawa On. I have played in several different style bands from rock & roll to country rock to currently a Beatles tribute. Claim to fame was performing for former Prime Minister Stephan Harper.
