Born and raised in Toronto (East-side whuddup!), I was the kid who was always sketching on the desks at school,
scribbling on the napkins at restaurants, and drawing on my parents drywall (they loved that). I loved the sense of discovery, the ability to play with perspective, and the mental freedom I could find in creating something. By the time I hit middle school I had also discovered that this same creative phenomena could be applied to music, resulting in my keen interest in making loud noises. This culminated in picking up the drums and the guitar, learning what I could about music production and ultimately playing in bands.
Much to the chagrin of my parents, I opted out of the Doctor, Lawyer path ( I think they wanted me to buy them new drywall now that I think of it) and went to study Fine Art at OCADU. After graduating, my natural interest in both the local music and art communities led me to keep an eye on Indie Pool, where I jumped at the opportunity to be involved in a role that combines my interest in both music and visuals. I’m happy to say that I still spend most of my time making things that I think look or sound interesting.
