Driven to learn as much as I can about how we interact with technology over the past 20 years I have focussed my energy into teaching design at Emily Carr University and building the Interaction Design program.

Getting to this point has been a long winding journey. There was a time when I worked as a professional musician playing guitar for 8-10 hrs a day, for years I practiced my craft during the day and gigged constantly. I studied composition and jazz in university in Montréal and graduated with a huge interest in recording music on computers. And before that, I studied architecture and began working in an architectural firm in Ottawa.


Over the years I have transitioned from a more traditional graphic design designed corporate identities, book covers, ads, album artwork and promotional items for prestigious clients like CBC, BMW, Chanel & Nokia, to running an interaction design agency called LiFT studios.

All that to say, I’ve had a lot of interests throughout my life and I am most interested in the intersection of music, design and technology.
