  • Preferred brands:    DW Drums, Paiste Cymbals, Remo Heads, Promark Sticks and SKB Cases.         
  • Other Bands/groups:   About the time I was 17, I was approached by the boys in The Electric Hellfire Club and my musical life took an interesting turn, to say the least. On and off for the next 17 years we would see endless touring and recording.  Besides leaving a trail of crazy-death-disco mayhem behind us, we also found ourselves supporting acts like Danzig, Type O Negative, Godflesh and all manner of 1990's goodness. Throughout the years I've performed with many great folks, spreading out to handle some Hip-Hop, Quirky Dance and Garage Rock production, including The Electric Hellfire Club; Kid Leather; Casualty of God; The Break Up; Ocelot Omelet; Dark Matter Noise; Fictitious; Bright White Lightning; Deathbed Repentance

I started out self-taught on guitar when I was 12, but later took private lessons from Craig Sorrenti for three years from age 15 to 18. He made a huge impact on my style and technique. I improved further by playing with as many different people and styles as I could, most importantly John McDermott and best friend Julian Ruiz.

  • Hobbies: I love to go to estate sales and antique shops, I love to paint and draw and watch Anime, I read and collect old poetry, I am a huge foodie and a cat person! I want to say I would not be where I am without my amazing parents; they have been a huge support for me throughout my development and I owe them a huge debt of gratitude.
