I was VP Business Affairs for CBS Records Canada when Céline Dion signed to CBS. A few years later I moved to Los Angeles and developed a great friendship with Céline and her manager René Angélil who were there often for a recording session, concert, TV appearance, video shoot, photo shoot, press and publicity or an award show. We sometimes talked about working together and eventually I joined Rene as part of his management team. We worked together for almost 17 years and it was a great honor and privilege that I will cherish forever. You could not dream of working for any finer people than René and Céline.

"Informer" has been recorded twice in the Guinness Book of world Records as the best selling reggae single in US history, as well as the highest charting reggae single in history.
On January 23, 2019, Daddy Yankee released the reggaeton and dancehall song “Con Calma" featuring “Snow," which was a major worldwide hit and the most viewed music video on YouTube in 2019 (1.8 billion views).
Snow and his song Informer will be Inducted into the Canadian Songwriter’s Hall of Fame on November 1, 2023.
I have been representing the Korean based, American born Artist Ailee who has accumulated multiple awards in Korea including multiple Best New Artist, Best Newcomer, and Best Female Vocal Performance awards (among others). Her song, “I Will Come To You Like The First Snow,” became the most streamed song in K-Pop history. For months, it was the longest running No.1 K-pop song on Korean music charts. Her 2019 album “Butterfly” established her fourth entry on Billboard’s World Album chart by debuting at No. 13, tying Ailee with the likes of other Korean female artists such as BoA, HyunA, and Lee Hi.
