As a recording engineer and music producer, he has worked with many leading Canadian jazz and classical musicians including Kenny Wheeler, Mike Downes, Kirk MacDonald, Dave Douglas, Anton Kuerti, Gryphon Trio, and Tafelmusik. Before joining Humber College in 2007, he served on the faculties of McGill University, the University of Hartford, and The Banff Centre for the Arts.

I’m honoured to support the continued success of this cherished institution.”
