Born in ​​​​​​​​​​Montreal Quebec, Canada, I began playing guitar in 1998 at age 14 and continue to do so with the same passion. Through the years I've performed and recorded with many bands and although my role has primarily been as guitarist, I have also played bass and keyboard/synth and enjoy singing both lead and backup as well.
