My Bio
Commissions are available. Contact me here!

I'm a jack of all trades and a master of none, starting with writing and branching into music, acting, video editing, painting and digital art. I have a number of chapbooks out with Dusty Owl Press based in Ottawa (www.dustyowl.com), a few albums up on my bandcamp page (kumahouse.bandcamp.com) and until recently, I was a contributor on Reviewtopia.net. I love music from 70s British punk and post punk to experimental hardcore, video game scores to modern laptop made pop, new wave to 90's alternative and contemporary indie, post rock to jazz. I love going to karaoke and yet I'm horribly shy at parties.

Hi, how are you?

If there's one question artists, writers and musicians hate with a passion aside from "What do you mean you want to get paid for this!?" it's "where do you get your ideas?" Well, until about last week, I didn't have any sort of decent answer. I would try to deflect the question as much as humanly possible or give some sort of self-deprecating answer as though the font of creativity was in some sort of secret location and it was my obligation to hide its whereabouts. The truth is, I really didn't know or at least I didn't understand. That said, I've been riding a creative streak working with Ideas and then just sticking with Illustrator as Id

Onward and further onward

I started a new art project tonight. Once I get all four of the initial pieces ready, I'll post the first set. The series itself is called Places Of Interest and the first set will be based on places I enjoy going to in KW. I'm paying homage to the places I am excited to visit in the city I live in and cities I have lived in. I have two completed thus far for KW, am trying to come up with 2 more, followed by London. When it comes to the Peterborough list, I'm going to have to pair them down. That said, I may make a special Trasheteria one on its own, a memorial if you will. The pictures themselves are going to be very minimalist and all base

January's End

It's been a month into 2012 and I think I'm doing alright aside from a low paying but fun day job and a lover who's about 30 hours away from kidney surgery. Either as a distraction or as the forming of a new vocation, I've been focusing on visual art.

Over the last 7 years, you'd be safe to assume that I've jumped formats and medi

You're welcome and thanks, those ones are my favorites too. I meant to reply to the comment you left met but "remove" is conveniently where "submit" should be IMO.
