I knew from about the age of 4 that I wanted to play music. I remember watching my dad's band rehearse in our basement and being completely fixated on the drummer! Got my first drum kit at the age of 11, and started to sing lead vocal... basically because there was nobody else willing to do it! Started playing cover tunes in bars at the age of 16, and the rest is history. Between '91-'93 I attended Professional Musicians College in Regina and obtained a diploma in Contemporary Voice. Throughout the years I've played in several cover/original bands of various genres, including Gokart Mozart, Centrifugal Chiller, Crofter's Revenge, and Tongue Jungle. Absolutely love Scottish/Irish and East Coast music! So, hopefully I'll be tilting kilts with these guys/gals for years to come!

As a wee lad, I was surrounded by music as my half-Ukranian heritage introduced me to banjo, fiddle, guitars, harmonicas and accordions. It was shortly after that I discovered K-Tel and spent countless hours singing into my mirror using a badminton racquet as my makeshift guitar. Def Leppard’s Pyromania record convinced me that real guitar would be way cooler, and after a few years of lessons, I morphed into a full time guitar teacher for a number of years before joining my first cover band. Although long hair, fast cars and rock and roll was my destiny (so I thought), a little known night in the early 90’s at a local bar watching an up and coming band called Great Big Sea introduced me to a wonderful style of music that allows me to celebrate my half-Scottish/Irish heritage as well. And although I have spent time in such bands as Crosstown, Normal to None, Frantic City and Grimstone... I feel truly at home when I am onstage with my Tilted “family” and doing what I truly love to do. Cheers!
