As a teenager, I collected instruments and devoured all the literature I could find on piano history and technology. I have learned extensively under the guidance of my Piano Technician's Guild chapter president, and in 2017 I studied in international seminars with the Guild.

I have tuned regularly for prominent Maritime organizations including the Confederation Centre of the Arts, Holland College, and numerous theaters and music halls.  References may be furnished upon request.  

y passion for pianos dovetails with a passion for putting them to work!  As a pianist and composer of ragtime, stride, blues, and classical music, I have headlined at international festivals, including appearances in the United States and Argentina.  In the Maritimes, my performance credits include a live concert for CBC's Studio H Sessions, several albums on the prestigious Rivermont label, as well as numerous local appearances.
