Words are birds, trying to agree on a direction to fly.
As a singer-songwriter, I work very hard to make sure that my lyrics are well written. Whether I'm telling a story, illustrating a vignette, or simply trying to evoke a mood, I love it when people pay attention to the lyrics. To that end, I'm happy to share with you the lyrics/liner notes from my Jolley Cut CD. I'll soon post Honeybucket lyrics here as well.

Images compete for my attention.
Back in highschool, I had an insipiring film teacher who instilled in me a love of film and images. We studied classics such as Hitchcock and Kurosawa, and I fell in with highly stylized genres such as Film Noir and German Expressionism. I went on to study film at Carleton University in Ottawa, but after a couple of years, a break up with my girlfriend, and the growing realization that I was primarily going to be writing essays rather than holding a camera, I dropped out of the program. The story goes on but, suffice to say, I've never lost my love of film and image-making, and I am constantly seeing and caputring images around the countryside where I live, and the places that I travel to (mostly Cost Rica). I am finally at the point where I am putting my images out there in the world and people keep asking me "when is your first show?". So... I am planning a show and wil be making my photos available as archival quality prints. In the meantime, contact me for details if you want to purchase a print. A few samples:
