I know how important tone is to your music – I’m a musician myself. Some gear just doesn’t want to give guitarists what they need, so what do you do? Start ripping amps apart to see how they work! At least that’s what I did.
I learned electrical engineering as a CNC repair technician and later advanced into Robotics and Systems. When my friends and musicians realized I knew how their stuff worked, I became the designated repairman… luckily I liked it!
My passions for electronics and music were finally coming together. I knew I had to design and build my own amplifiers. Amplifiers that provide totally unique tone not be found in other amps, with circuits that stand up to the beatings of gigging night after night.
Revv Amplification has been my passion ever since.
Vice President of Sales & Marketing
Playing guitar for 25 years leaves you in an interesting place. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have my tone habits I had completely settled into, especially having played every amp I could get my hands on. I was comfortable, but a little bored to be honest. When I played Dan’s Generator 120 prototype, it took 30 seconds to realize he created something totally fresh, super unique, and absurdly versatile.
I knew that Revv Amplification was special, and that I had to do everything I can to help Dan make his amps even better and get them into the hands of guitarists worldwide. Having managed production oriented businesses for over a decade, I knew how to take care of customers and produce quality every time… but I also knew how difficult the music industry is. You have to be passionate, because you have to work twice as hard and risk more money than someone making a normal product. I took that risk, and I couldn’t be happier to be where I am today.
Where are Revv Amps made? Right here in Winnipeg, Canada!

I was always a tinkerer. My dad’s workshop is where I grew up, and earned my love and respect for building anything I can get my hands on. From restoring old bicycles and drum sets, to building new stompboxes and percussion instruments, transforming raw materials into something functional and inspiring is my joy.
Joining Revv Amplification gave me the opportunity to build something really special. An amp that has tone like no other, with a unique and fun aesthetic. I take great care in the details and hope that each amp we create will bring joy to others for years to come.
Who are Revv Amps? A family.
