OZ has been an active musician for over 30 years. Originally from Vancouver, OZ moved to Nanaimo 11 years ago and has enjoyed the slower pace of family life, yet keeping strong ties with the Vancouver music community. A graduate of UBC (1993) with a Bachelor of Music, OZ continues to pass on the wealth of knowledge from the days of music academia, along with years of practical application in the various performance groups. His dedication to furthering the understanding of music outside of the mainstream, particularly world music and improvised music, keeps ideas fresh and exciting.
