In 1995, while working on my MSc. at McGill in computer science, I began The Lied and Art Song Texts Page, which is now called The Lied, Art Song, and Choral Texts Archive (a more accurate title but a bit of a mouthful). The project is a large, freely-accessible web archive of texts and translations to art songs and other vocal texts. Thanks to the help of over 900 volunteers, it provides a wealth of material.

A little about myself: I play the violin (amateur level) and enjoy chamber music. I play string quartets, quintets, and piano trios the most often -- and in 2007, Gary Bachlund very kindly dedicated a lovely and humorous piano trio to me. The Vancouver International Song Institute named me their 2011 Distinguished Art Song Champion and flew me in to enjoy and participate in a delightful mix of concerts, seminars, masterclasses, and discussion forums. A great honour!
