Born in 1953 and schooled in the sixties, a completed post-secondary education would follow at Red River College in machine design and drafting for the manufacturing industries. Relocating to the west coast of Canada in the 1980s and attending Vancouver Film School in 1989 would open new doors. Involvement behind the camera as a sound mixer got me working with some prominent actors.
Participating as a film extra got me acting in front of the camera while also performing in several travelling bands as a bass man. I completed my working career in camera sales and am now retired and living on Vancouver Island.
