He’s worked in theatre (As You Like It, Dracula, The Real Inspector Hound, The Pillowman, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea), television (Blue Mountain State, Being Human, Bullet in the Face, 19-2) and film (I’m Not There, Imaginaerum, 3 Saisons (nominated for 3 Genie Awards)), to name a few projects, not to mention many commercials and short films.
He’s been especially busy in the last few years with voice work, motion capture, fight choreography and stunt performance, often having the chance to combine his love for all those things in video game work.

I’ve been nominated for two (!) ACTRA Awards, in the categories of Outstanding Performance – Voice (for 2 Nuts & a Richard) and Outstanding Performance – Video Game (for Wrench in Watchdogs 2). The results will be known on June 11th, at the 8th ACTRA Awards. Wish me luck!
Outlast 2 is finally out! Sequel to the hugely popular Outlast by Red Barrel Games, I play the lead character, Blake Langermann, a cameraman who finds himself (along with his wife, Lynn) trapped in one of the worst places on Earth. See the launch trailer here. Not for the faint of heart!
I’m thrilled to announce that I (along with the other members of DEDSEC) will be a guest at this year’s Montreal Comic Con (July 7th to 9th)! We’ll be doing photo ops and signings, as well as a Q&A panel on the Saturday. Come down and say hi, I’m looking forward to meeting some fans!
Watch_Dogs 2 is out, and it’s great! It’s been getting really positive reviews so far, and the fans are loving it! I play Wrench, one of the members of DEDSEC, a hacktivist collective in San Francisco. I finished the game a little while ago and I thought it was really terrific!
