Welcome!

Welcome to my little corner of the digital universe. 

If you wish to reach me concerning any of the things I do, please do so via the e-mail listed on my twitter.

Most of my time is spent immersed in the world of audio post as a Foley artist and editor. I also do other audio postproduction; music composition and production; and bespoke acoustic drum and percussion tracks. I have an extensive credit list of work for major production and entertainment companies that has been heard around the world in a variety of mediums, including television, film, radio, theme parks, apps, and video games. 

I also have 2 remote recording rigs which I use to record local artists in and around the Toronto area. I have a 6-channel 'guerrilla' recording rig that requires minimal to no interfacing with a venue's sound system and can be used in very sub-optimal recording conditions (fast changeovers, no sound system gigs, etc.) As well, I have a proper 24-channel Pro Tools-based multichannel recording setup with Focusrite Saffire preamps, transformer-isolated microphone splitters, and cables long enough to operate up to 100' from the stage. I offer both of these remote recording options to indie musicians at very reasonable rates to help encourage the GTA's rich, diverse musical community.  

And though it often takes a back seat to my studio work, I am also a working, performing musician and have been at it for over 30 years. I play a variety of instruments, including drums (both acoustic and electronic), percussion, Zendrum, and bass. I have performed throughout Canada and the US with a variety of groups and artists.

And though I've played many different genres over the years, stylistically, I naturally gravitate towards anything groovy and funky - I love playing music you can dance to. My own musical sweet spot is somewhere between laid-back 70's funk and 60's psychedelic rock with a bit of metal edge thrown in for good measure. And I am happiest playing with people who share an appreciation of those styles of music, even if we're playing an entirely different genre.

I am currently in production to release my first ever full-length recording of my own instrumental music, coming out in 2021. I'm very much looking forward to sharing it with you.

If you're interested in working together and you'd like to connect, I would love to hear from you.  Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!

Alex
