Songwriting Achievements:
In 2009 I won the VIRGIN Radio 99.9 Songwriting Contest in Toronto ahead of 15,000 other entries. The song charted Top 20 in Canada for 13 weeks and had over 7 million audience impressions. I didn't pursue songwriting as a career because I was too busy making money writing jingles. I have also written many songs for TV shows and have landed theme songs for animated kids series.
