This will be my 4th year as a ACMA and second year CCMA. I worked with I am working on contact building to travel internationally and tour possibly with another band as an opener or showcase. I am applying to Project Wild, Calgary Stampede and the Alberta Ag to perform at cabaret shows. I have been performing more this year as a focus to attend some festivals such as Whitecourt with Courtney Milford the producer. I won opportunities to perform, at the NMC Tour Alberta showcase and the Olds Radio Lyon Club Contest. Eventually, I would love to tour Europe promoting my releases in Italy, France, Greece, Germany and Norway as suggested by Harlin Smith at the ACMA awards in 2019. I completed another radio tour in Western Canada in 2019 with the release of “Thinkin Bout” with my second produced Youtube video. Recorded some demos to produce with Kevin Lato in hopes for a third or fourth radio release with video and tour in 2020.

This year anthem singing is a forte. I had the pleasure of riding on my horse at the Canadian Pro Rodeo and Cochrane Rodeo Grounds while singing, Maxbell Arena and Old Grizzly Arena. I have Okotoks Arena lined up this year and for 2020.
I continue to participate film and movies and commercial work as well with the NMC commercial, Fortunate Sons and soon coming Teacher tv series. My previous work acting includes Heartland, Disney and shows such as Tin Star and Broke Back Mountain.
