He has written a large body of vocal, chamber, and orchestral compositions, but is particularly highly-regarded for his choral works.

Currently a full professor at Queen’s University in Kingston, he holds an Associate Diploma from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Piano Performance, in addition to degrees from the University of Toronto and the University of British Columbia. From 2001 – 2003 he was a Composer-in-Residence for the National Youth Orchestra of Canada, during which time they premiered his work, Sonic Architecture. He has been a member of the Executive of the Canadian League of Composers since 1993, and served as President since 1998..."
