MUSIC

1986 - Present

I have a passion for creating art, my other passion is music. I have been in a few bands growing and was fortunate enough to get signed to Combat Records in the 1980's. I'm the guitarist for DBC (Dead Brain Cells) we recorded 2 albums, toured the US and had loads of fun.

DBC released a self titled album 'Dead Brain Cells' in 1987 and 'Universe' in 1989. We had our own special way of playing thrash & technical metal. We had our video 'The Genesis Explosion' played many times on Musique Plus and later that track was featured for a Fido commercial across Canada.

Currently I still play music with DBC and Kill of Rights. Kill of Rights released our debut CD 'Sign of the Crimes' in 2014. It consists of some great local musicians and music that was written from 1986 to 2014. You can search for both bands on Youtube. There's a lot to listen and watch.
