Overdue Update

It came to my attention that I haven't updated my website in a long time, so I'm going to fill you in on everything that's happened in one fell swoop!

Countermeasure has been very busy lately - we just got back from Japan a couple of weeks ago! It was both a wildly successful tour and my first chance to see the country where my dad's side of the family came from. A life-changing experience, for sure!

I've started a mixed barbershop quartet called West Train! We competed in the Ontario District Barbershop Harmony contest in April and placed third in the province, a result we were very happy with given how we'd only pulled the group together a short while beforehand. Excited for future performances!

I've had probably my busiest spring at work to date, working on four different shows including season six of Top Chef Canada for the Food Network and season three of Home to Win for HGTV. Things are wrapping up just in time for us to start on season six of The Amazing Race Canada. Never a dull moment!

The musical I mentioned in my previous post went well and was a rewarding experience. I've also been taking voice lessons since I've been focusing on my singing so much lately, and they've been paying off. Not much to report on the writing/composing/photography front these days - too busy with everything else!

I'll do my best to keep this website more up to date but we all know that can be a struggle... :)



South Pacific

After a busy summer I'm finally getting back to some creative projects. I've been doing some arranging (for my friend Laura's Youtube channel, Stories 2 Songs), as well as undertaking some significant self-improvement efforts, like voice lessons and dance lessons. Why all these lessons, you ask? Well:

I was cast in a musical!

I'll be in the ensemble for Etobicoke Musical Productions' South Pacific, the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic. I've never been in a musical before so I'm very excited. I'm also finding it a great opportunity to better myself - I sing a lot and I've danced in the past but musical theatre is a different style than I'm used to for both, so I'm taking the chance to brush up on my skills.

The musical is playing at Meadowvale Theatre in Mississauga at the end of October. If you're interested, tickets can be purchased here!

Onwards and upwards!
