About Me

I was born and raised in suburban Ottawa since January, 2000. The earliest songs I remember liking were ‘The Jean Genie” by David Bowie and “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” by Paul Simon. This may explain a lot about how disconnected I am from modernity, but those are some great songs. Since then my life has been marked by minor inconveniences and minor successes. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at 11, and, probably because of so much time spent around hospitals and their constant cycle of life and death, I have fallen in love with the youthful idealism of punk, the hopeful yet pragmatic blues, and everything in between. Since then I’ve been teaching guitar lessons, playing and coaching volleyball, and performing whenever and wherever I can around Ottawa and now Montreal.

I started university at Concordia University in September, 2018 studying communications. 2018 has been an absurdly busy time for my creative projects, having created (as of October) 4 EPs, 2 full length LPs, about half a dozen short films, and a few short stories here and there. Looking forward to keeping this updated with the latest projects. Enjoy!
