I’m going to be playing at the TEDxOakville Launch Party on Tuesday, June 22! This should be a fantastic event and I’m thrilled to be working with New Media artist Faisal Anwar. You can check out some of Faisal’s work here.

The TEDxOakville theme is: “Can an individual in Oakville really make a difference and change the world?” If you’d like to learn more about TEDxOakville, please visit thispage.
