For 25 or more years I was a professional bass player playing in many types of bands, teaching and making a living from music. At the same time, I was also working full time in a music store doing repairs to guitars and basses as well as managing the store. In 2013 the perfect storm happened in my life and pushed me over the edge. I had suffered for over 38 years from depression and I had to make a call for help which was one of the most difficult things I have ever done. 


After a month of intense therapy my therapist started giving me home work. I would hand it in and we would talk about what I had written and work on changing my negative thoughts. She told me I was a natural writer and that if I wrote a book I could change 1000’s of people lives who suffer in silence and are too afraid to reach out and get help. Four years later I released my book “Why I Run” My story of how I won my life back from the darkness of depression.


Since they release of my book my life has changed dramatically. I have become a public speaker doing talks all around southern Ontario for many different originations to raise awareness on depression and mental health, with the goal of breaking the stigma and helping as many people as I can.  Shortly after the release of my book people start coming into my working, buying my book and talking to me sometimes for the first time about there struggles. They felt comfortable talking with me, I would help them by listening and pointing them in the right directions, also helping them the best I could. “Why I run” has touched 1000’s of peoples lives.


 I have now written a Creative writing course called “ Creative writing for the Mind, Body & Soul” This course brings “Why I Run” to life in a classroom or one on one setting. My goal in life is to help as many people as I can. My experiences and struggles made me strong not weak and I now live a life of purpose!I

I am more than overjoyed to be a part of the #NOHARM team.  Only with open conversation can we end the stigma behind depression, lets start talking and end it together!!
