When you sneak out of the office for a selfie break, but forget that your boss is able to see you through the glass the entire time (sorry @fshelf!) 🌊 #halifax#novascotia#maritimes

Performing a track I wrote & produced for my advanced @ableton final called "Thirst" earlier this week 🎶 Thank you for the past two semesters @erinbarra, I've learned so much from you❣

I’ve been keeping this to myself because it doesn’t feel real – but today was just really great and I wanted to share that one of my biggest dreams appears to finally be coming true: I will be moving to NYC for the entire summer and interning at a recording & sound design studio. New York has been my dream for literally the past sixteen years of my life, and it’s always been just out of reach mainly due to the fact that I am Canadian. I took this photo nearly 4 years ago one night when I was visiting and decided to go watch the sunset from the top of the Empire State Building by myself. I remember just feeling this intense despair and fear that I wouldn’t be able to make it happen. 20 internship applications and 2 college rejections later, I’ve finally got my foot in the door. Never compromise, never settle – I’m so glad I didn’t. #NYC

If u need me u can find me wrapped in a blankie burrito somewhere in the Bay Back 💁🏼

Today I was finally back in rehearsal with my ensemble after being away for two long weeks! At Berklee, I am regularly awed and inspired by the art that my peers are creating, but this morning things seemed to be on another level. As I listened to everybody play their new songs, I had this recurring thought that one day I would say "I knew them when...". Seriously, such a gifted and hardworking group of people. ************************************************ Aaron is an exceptional sound designer and controllerist - today he performed an amazing violin piece on the Seaboard RISE, which honestly blew my mind. Tori can sing, shred on her Telecaster and control her arrangement and FX via Ableton simultaneously. Santiago keeps us in time using his electronic drum kit, and Tal is a master of keys and looping. Rachel and Bailey always have the most creative arrangements and use vocal synthesis and harmonization in ways that I would never have imagined, and Gareth, in addition to being an remarkable keyboardist, has also mastered the Leap Motion Controller, which triggers sound through hand gestures. And I can’t forget to mention our teacher and mentor, the man Loudon Stearns. If you have the chance to take a class with him, take it! ************************************************When I started making electronic music & enrolled in EPD, I took some heat from people who didn’t understand why I would want to “become a DJ”. I’m not a DJ, nor did I ever want to be one – I just wanted to be able to create the sounds that existed solely in my mind for far too long. Electronic production and sound design have allowed me to begin to do that. Although I can appreciate that at times there may be a disconnect between what we are actually doing onstage as artists, and an audiences understanding of it, I hope that more people will begin to embrace electronic music as an art form that encompasses so much more than simply pushing buttons. There's so much more to it than that. ************************************************ Thanks for listening to me gush about my friends & music ❤️ #berkleecollegeofmusic#ableton#EPD#sounddesign#music

When a door slams in your face, knock on another #NYC

We were quite the team. I wish you could see me now and hear some of the music I've been working on. I still write on your old Ibanez, and I still miss you just as much as I did on the first day ❤️ **Sending love to anybody out there who is missing their bro or sis on Sibling Day, you are not alone**

Everybody loves you when you're a big fat ostrich #fuzz

Looking back on my first day in a new life - sometimes nothing going according to plan can turn out to be the best thing that ever happens to you #2015

Morning magic ☀️❄️💕 #novascotia #home
