Hi! Thanks for dropping by my site!

As a musician, composer, producer, photographer, artist, instructor, and technology creator, I've had my fingers in a few pies. I've worked with Lucasfilm, Nelvana, Rush, Lee Aaron, Platinum Blonde, Bell Canada, Hydro One, Panalpina, Ceridian, and more.

I am multiple NMA "Jazz Artist of the Year" winner, nominated four times, Downbeat Magazine nominee, studio musician, and lateral-thinking problem solver. I'm also a technology instructor, Thai Massage and Restorative Yoga practitioner, a Zumba instructor, and freelance journalist. For more than two decades I've supported the Niagara Jazz, Blues, and Roots music scenes, and promoted live music throughout the region.

Take a look around my site, and feel free to get in touch! Contact me to book me for performances.

For high quality instruments (like BassLab and Eminence) and amps (like Acoustic Image), take a look at my business site, www.ghservices.com.

A quick look at things I have done:

Challenge:

The largest US-based payroll company was outsourcing one of its projects, a contract worth several million dollars. An off-shore company that was bidding for the project needed to distinguish themselves from the competition.

Solution:

GH, a recognized expert in the tools used in the project, was contacted by the off-shore company and flown to the client's campus to analyze the system. His work was instrumental in the off-shore company winning the bid, and GH was written into the contract to manage the transition.

Challenge:

The largest North American electrical utility needed to move their revenue-critical meter management systems to distributed operation.

Solution:

GH created data synchronization, replication, and networking technologies, plus UI tools for an integrated system that included remote field units and central data repositories with cloud architecture and dashboards, years before these things became common. It operated bug-free for more than a decade.

Challenge:

In preparation for a corporate restructuring, a Minnesota-based drug store chain hired a Canadian accounting software firm, who in turn needed additional expertise.

Solution:

The Canadian firm retained GH, who acted as forensic data consultant, ultimately creating deeper insight into the data. During several trips to the client's site, GH analyzed existing data and, upon finding inconsistencies, created a new data warehouse and migrated data into it, re-designed data structures, created graphical data query tools, and increased speed by a factor of six over the prior system.

Challenge:

A Quebec-based training company wanted to expand into the Toronto market, and they needed a skilled trainer to develop and present the courses.

Solution:

GH wrote all manuals and course material, configured the workstations, and taught the classes, both in the lab and at client facilities (which included national insurance companies and global software companies).

Challenge:

The largest Canadian telecommunications provider needed a software system for their Time Reporting group.

Solution:

GH joined the team and updated the software, eliminating bugs, documenting, and improving code quality. Later, when he was a educator, telco employees taking his class often commented that his source code repository was treated like a national treasure.

Challenge:

An iconic Canadian rock singer needed to create a demo album to attract the attention of a big-name producer. Her team determined that they needed a non-conventional approach.

Solution:

GH was hired to work with the team to develop and record the backing tracks using cutting-edge technology, which led to a considerable savings in expensive studio time. The demo was successful, and the big-name producer signed on for the next commercial album.

Challenge:

The top Canadian rock trio needed to bring their latest album cover to life with dramatic and dynamic sounds for their concert visual backdrop.

Solution:

The management team hired GH to work with the band's album artist and vocalist/bassist to create the soundtrack for the animated album cover.

Challenge:

A movie studio famous for its three-part space opera was looking for Foley and sound effects for two animated spin-off series.

Solution:

GH was hired to provide live digital effects for the two series, and worked with the sound effects supervisor to perform to picture.
