I began experimenting with abstract images and film in the late sixties and later worked for two years as the principle operator at Merlot Scanimation, a computer animation studio in London, England. The studio’s novel hybrid analogue computer was used to make some of the first computer animated television commercials in the UK.
In 1975, I returned to Canada and began a 30-year career with a large multinational company working on Ontario, Alberta and Michigan in areas of information technology and environmental research, but continued my interest in the visual arts. In early 2000, I returned to the computer as a creative tool and began experimenting with mathematical algorithms to generate patterns and abstract images. I began to animate these images to music, which I often composed myself. To compliment this activity and to explore more traditional animation themes, I began working with "After Effects", a commercial 2-D software package used for animation and special effects. In general, I am interested in the relationship between sounds and images and exploring those through computer and video techniques. Over the last few years I have had films shown at festivals in North America and Europe.
