He has performed throughout Canada on the guitar with Danielle Knibbe, James Burrows, Jenie Thai, David Newberry, and Rachael Cardiello; on the electric bass with The Marwills, Skye Wallace, and VISSIA; and on the drum set with Skye Wallace and Chealsea Reed.

His breadth and range make him extremely useful on the stage, in the recording studio, and in the classroom.
