I am an independent software development consultant, specializing in model-driven development with Eclipse technology, which has been a passion for the last ten years.  I am widely recognized for my high-quality output, timely delivery, and friendly and engaging manner.

I also happen to be a capable singer, performing sacred and secular works for choir and tenor solo from the renaissance to today.  If you are presenting vocal music in Ottawa, eastern Ontario, or west Québec, I can be your tenor.

Vocal Projects

I am a member of several prominent choirs in the Ottawa area and am always available for solo engagements.

Choral

  • Christ Church Cathedral Ottawa, since 2014 — The Choir of Men and Boys is one of the premier church choirs in the national capital region and an exceedingly rare example of an old tradition. The choir provides music not only at services and special events at home, but has a wide-ranging outreach mission around Canada, North America, and even overseas.
  • Cantata Singers of Ottawa, since 2015 — A long-established choir covering the gamut of musical eras and traditions, effectively serving as the choir in residence at the National Arts Centre of Canada. Concerts every year include the choir's own series in Ottawa, plus usually a few guest performances with other organizations and/or tours in Canada and abroad.
  • Capital Chamber Choir, since 2016 — a choir known for the clarity and dynamic range of its sound, superb precision, and a propensity for tackling challenging work. This choir has a mission to present modern Canadian music, which is brilliantly on display in our debut CD album.
  • The Anglican Chorale of Ottawa, since 2002 — The ACO's mission is to bring the ancient and beautiful Anglican tradition of choral evensong to churches around the nation's capital that don't normally have an opportunity to experience it, and to fill in for a week during the summer vacation of the regular choirs in the great cathedrals of the United Kingdom.

Solo

  • Art song repertoire includes such pieces as Schumann's Dichterliebe and Britten's 7 Sonnets of Michelangelo
  • Oratorio repertoire includes arias from such works as Bach's Weihnachtsoratorium and Handel's Messiah

Past

  • Seventeen Voyces, 2012 to 2015 — Seventeen Voyces, directed by Kevin Reeves, is one of Ottawa's finest chamber choirs, bringing rarities and familiar works to delighted audiences for almost two decades. Signature favourites are annual performances of classic silent movies with live choral accompaniment and a fully staged world première of the comic operetta Casanova by local composer Andrew Ager.
  • Four Yorkshiremen, 2007 to 2016 — A small group of accomplished local singers that assembles occasionally to perform the finest of old and new sacred music, either on their own or augmenting local church choirs. For a few years resident at Dominion Chalmers United Church in Ottawa, the group since 2013 has gone independent and established itself firmly in the local music scene.
