I do this
Print | Web | Multi-media | Marketing | eCommerce | Badstone Music

This is my online. Proof I was here.

This site records my style; both design and music. It does my professional and personal portfolio samples, my presentations and social media work; my music, blogs, and video works, as well as, my ongoing textile designs.
I listen to questions and quote requests. I rock at cms ecomm builds.

I am a career (and surviving) graphic and web designer, with strength in marketing, branding,
code and CMS design, social media, ecomm, and video editing...
AND music composition, instumentation, sound engineering, mixing, and editing.

I love freelance and seek any offer or challenge.
Music/Design is my kung-fu.

"Life plays the music and I dance,
whether I choose to or not.
But the more the music plays,
the better I dance."
scotthuntermcnair.02.12.1999


I WAS

born into a family where several relatives are classically trained.
I was not. I decided to make it on a 'perfect ear' alone.

I was involved in several bands in my 20s, originally as a rhythm guitarist for a three piece band, then after losing my left index finger, a keyboardist and writer for two bands (with some drums); eventually becoming an engineer of sortsout of shear desperation and necessity. The true progressive garage band experience I guess you would say.

It wasnt until 2006, more than 15 years after playing live in a band, when I dusted off my Roland HS-60 studio board following years of neglect, and decided to get back to jamming again. It had been such a long a time; it felt amazing and was then that I decided to start writing again. Here we are today... over 10 collections in, twelve years on ~ from reckless high school kids kicking it around in a Mississauga basement, to where I am now. I'm older and more in love with creating music now than ever before. I have been lucky to meet
some key people over the years, who are gifted musicians, and,
have taught me a lot about music; inspiring me to move forward
trying new things with my work.

I love the process, the collaborations, and posting new music. My trip is cajoling these sounds into becoming moments together. I hope you enjoy my work. Thank you for listening!
