ABOUT

Hey, I’m an Ottawa based songwriter and music producer. I’ve been releasing albums, EPs and songs for my two music projects “A Harbor for Dreams” and “Derealization” for over seven years now. I do everything in the song making process myself from writing to recording (instruments and vocals), mixing and mastering.

I love collaborating with others and am now looking to branch out more and use the experience I’ve gained over the past several years to help other artists with songwriting and production.

If you need advice or support in relation to writing and music production, want me to co-write/produce a song for you or just want someone to bounce ideas of off feel free to hit me up!

You can hear some of the songs I’ve made in the link below (or you can find them on Spotify).
