Composer for film, television & radio

I’ve been fascinated with music as far back as I can remember. I began experimenting with sound at a very early age. From piano lessons at age four, to building my own crude instruments, to trying to play every instrument I could get my hands on. My attraction to music led me to discover what has become my lifelong passion.

My career began after graduating from the Music Industry Arts Recording Engineering program at Fanshawe College in London. I was fortunate to land a gig at KEEN Music in Toronto as an engineer. After a few short years at KEEN, I landed my first television series Great Canadian Parks.

Over the past three decades I’ve had the great honour of working with so many talented filmmakers, directors, producers and musicians. I’ve had the pleasure of writing music for a multitude of film, television, radio and multi-media productions. I’ve even been fortunate enough to have my work nominated for a Gemini Award along the way.

It’s an honour and a privilege to work in a field that I’m so passionate about.


Mike always delivers a fresh approach to any directive given him.  His cues fit right in the mix both emotionally and technically.

Mike’s ability to interpret story and infuse the material we’ve shot with emotion and energy consistently takes the work to another level, giving the audience an unforgettable experience. From our earliest meetings to talk ideas and influences to the final mix Mike’s collaborative style, creativity and technical perfection are assets that I’ve been very lucky to have on several award winning productions.”

A ready, reliable determined and crazy jack of all trades. Mike’s talents have proven invaluable to my music and my band. Throw in his loyalty and friendship and that right there is some kind of monster!
