About this Speaker

I Grew up in the Toronto Suburbs back in the 70s and 80s where I literally lived in Waynes World. Mike Myers was from the Toronto Suburbs too and he did a very good job detailing the life of an adolescent from Scarbro . My World was full of Blues, Classic Rock, jamming in basements in the winter and busking ouside the Gas Works on Yonge Street in the Summer. After I dropped out of Trebas School for Recording Arts at the ripe old age of 18 (It took six months to realised I wasn't a Studio Guy) I started a course at George Brown Community College in Audio Systems and Servicing and got a job fixing stuff at the local Radio TV repair shop. Winter came again and I found myself following my English girlfriend back to the Home Counties late in '91 and soon discovered Raving with her younger brother. About a year and a half passed and I headed to London to stay on a Dutch Barge with my old College mate near Kew Gardens. A few Pub and Kitchen jobs later I found myself doing agency work at the Brixton Academy and Local Crewing for Stage Miracles. These were hard times and I ended up falling in with a Free Party Crew from Brixton called the DVAnt Mob. One day, in a Perfect Storm, I found myself painting some Steeldeck at the Brixton Academy and a guy named Pete asked me I wanted to paint some speakers tomorrow? I said sure! That evening an old friend from Kew called me asked if I could mix a band at the Blue Note in Hoxton Square. I said sure for the second time that day and jumped on the Tube, I was out of my depth and out of my mind but they like what I did and asked if I could come back tomorrow, I said sure for the third and final time that day! The next morning I headed to Osiers Road in Wandsworth and started my time in the BRP warehouse working in the Speaker Department. The next few years where spent painting speakers by day, mixing bands by night and helping out at way too many Free Parties in South London on the weekends! This is where I cut my teeth, some call it a Dark Art. I prefer to think of it as Doing Art with Physics.
