tel: Ex 229
Born in New York, I enjoyed the big city life for all of two years before my parents decided they knew best, and smuggled me into Canada.
It wasn’t until the beginning of high school that I had any real interest in music – up until that point I had only had only taken childhood glockenspiel lessons and a failed attempt at learning the tuba. But 9th grade brought on a drive for AV tech, concert bands, music theatre, and an unhealthy amount of music purchasing (and pirating).
After graduating from Music Industry Arts at Fanshawe in 2009, I moved to Toronto and have been living semi-comfortably as an industry consultant, aggressive music collector, handsome gentleman, band manager, and now Indie Pool’s incredibly charming biz dev guy.
Feel free to give me a call or email if you’d like to talk about music, business, the music business, dogs, food, how video games are now an art form, what it’s like to be colourblind, more food, or if you just want to call to tell me your troubles – that’s just fine by me.
