This page is mostly for my own benefit, but I've put in a few words of explanation for all the links I included.

  • Chor Leoni is an excellent Vancouver-based men's choir that I'm a member of, classical in nature although we perform lots of recent compositions.
  • Amazin' Blue is a coed a cappella group I was a member of when I was a graduate student at the University of Michigan from 1995-97. Similarly, Mixed Company is a coed a cappella group I was a member of when I was an undergraduate at Stanford University from 1988-92. Both groups still exist of course, with their memberships constantly renewing themselves.

    There are hundreds of these modern a cappella groups at universities and colleges in the United States (and a few in Canada and several in US high schools); most of the repertoire is songs you would hear on the radio today. If you haven't heard any of this music, you're in for a treat - go to either group's web site and find some of the sound bites from their albums.

  • For no particular reason, I made a list of the arrangements I did for these and other a cappella groups, as well as for Chor Leoni.
  • Rhythm City Productions is the company that organizes Vancouver's Thursday swing dances as well as swing dance lessons at all levels with excellent teachers. The Vancouver Swing Society is a Vancouver-based non-profit dedicated to the promotion of Lindy hop, Balboa, and authentic jazz dances to the lower mainland. I can't tell you how much fun I find Lindy hop.
  • The Vancouver Ultimate League is the city's organizing body for “Ultimate frisbee”, a beautiful sport. The VUL has over 200 teams signed up to play every year; I play for the Turf Burners.
  • Who says a professor can't run a side business as well? Martin Estate is a small and vibrant Napa Valley winery. Check out the business and products, or read the interview by Appellation America. In vino non veritas!
  • Chris and Brian are my two brothers - older and younger, respectively.
