Born in Hazelton, British Columbia. Grew up in Edmonton, Alberta. Left to avoid certain death. Studied Screenplay writing in Vancouver. Spent time in Montreal, Nelson, Toronto, Switzerland & many small towns across Western Canada. I picked up a guitar while living in Uster, Switzerland in 2009 and played my first show in Montreal in 2011. Since then I have written a couple hundred songs as a solo artist and as a member of other projects. I have also assisted as a lyricist for bands in Switzerland (Manolo Panic, The Stoop, Spiders & Cockroaches, Baba Shrimps) and currently play guitar and sing in Shmö Magestica, Hazelton, The Mackies & The Stoop.
In early 2014 Liam McIvor Tyner, Jordan Sawchuk & I started “Fortune Creek Recording Co.” our objective is to assist with and release music that we feel passionate about.
