Music

Prior to philosophy, I studied jazz at ​Capilano University in Vancouver, Canada. After many years performing as a guitarist, I started playing the vibraphone while in graduate school, and it is now my primary instrument. I also do some composing. You can view a collection of my compositions here, and you can listen to a selection of my recordings below.
