As an actor, I've performed for the queen of England. As a film-maker, I've participated in several film festivals, placing first in the Toronto Art Festival 2006, in the digital film category. As a zen gardener, my designs have appeared in the Absorb art show. My poems and short stories have been published in journals and magazines across north America, on and offline. On devART I've received one Daily Literature Deviation commendation for the poem Self-Made Men, and one for The 1998 Housefire At 198 Wentworth Street South. And my music has appeared on radio stations and at concert halls in numerous countries across North America and Europe. I've written music for the bands Ben Caplan and the Casual Smokers, Hobo Sapiens, Uvenburd, and my eponymous solo project. An upcoming anthology of short stories, In the Wings, focusing on women forgotten by history, will include my short The Changeling (unavailable on devART, sorry :3). In the Wings will be published by Seraphim Editions and will be available later this year.
