Oxide was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It
was his frequent visits to his grandfather’s farm that kept
him in touch with his prairie roots - there among the wide-open
spaces his creative outlook was influenced and formed.
The Doctor has been writing songs for over two decades. Several
of his songs have become “headliner” anthems at various political
and environmental benefits.
Over the years, Dr. Oxide has been a regular performer/activist
at many festivals. He played at one of the first international
conferences on acid rain and at many other environmental benefits
including performances for saving the whales, renouncing uranium
mining and for protecting the Wild Horses of Suffield, Canada's
largest herd of wild horses.
He is a past Director of Greenpeace, Alberta, Canada and strongly
believes that “there
is no greater issue than the environment,
our need to protect and enhance our habitat. It is time that
we all become good stewards of our sacred planet earth.” 2005
was the warmest year ever recorded. Our planet needs you.
The time for action is now!

I like to tell stories that make us happy or sad, laugh or
cry or make us stop and ponder just about everything or anything.
That’s what I do. I hope some of my songs have struck a personal
