I grew up in northern Ontario on a diet of blueberries and public broadcasting, and began collecting strange noises the moment I first laid my hands on a tape recorder. While attending the University of Waterloo, I became a producer, composer and on-air host at CKMS-FM, where I learned to edit — first on a reel-to-reel, and later using Pro Tools.

I’ve been producing podcasts since 2011, and in 2014, launched the fantasy hospital sitcom Alba Salix, Royal Physician. It’s since had two major spinoff series, and we are gearing up to record a second season.
