Songwriter + Producer

As a songwriter I enjoy telling stories filled with imagery. My artistic sensibility helps me express precise feelings. My background as visual artist transposes the emotions into musical landscape. My goal is to entertain the listeners by creating and sharing beauty.

At the age of four I was given my first guitar. I remember it, as of yesterday. I clearly recalls the feeling of standing on the chair, in the kitchen, holding my guitar real tight. I was entertaining the infinite crowd in front of him. A new passion was born!

Drawing helped me survive high school. It allowed me to step away from the boredom, into my own imaginary world. This world was located somewhere between the vinyl album artwork and Bugs Bunny’s fantasies.

In college I learned to turn my dreams into reality. I studied fine arts and communication arts. At night and on weekends, I played bass with various local punk rock, emo-core and post-rock bands. I was then exploring every possible creative avenue. Music was becoming the central point of my life. During this period, I recorded and toured with bands such as: Unsafe, June, Equilibrium, and Land of Nubia. After many years of touring and somewhat intense living, I decided to slow down and do something gracefully important. I founded a family.

After a few years of solo writing, I enrolled for the Master Certificate in Production and Songwriting, at Berklee Online. I wanted to learn how to craft better songs, in a professional manner. Three years later, I completed my certificate in December, 2019.

I am currently living and working in Vancouver, BC (Canada). I write for sync and other artists. Last year, I founded my own indie publishing company: West First Publishing.

Have a great day!
