ABOUT

I had dreamed of being a rock star since I was 14. I started playing guitar when I was 17, and I'm currently trying out singing. I initially got into a band called Crush 40, the band responsible for writing the theme music for one of my favorite video game franchises, Sonic the Hedgehog, as well as the post-grunge, hard alternative, and pop punk scenes of the mid-to-early 2000s. Then I got into heavy metal music through Metallica, and I have been a heavy metal fan since. My stylistic tastes have changed throughout time, from hard alternative/nu metal, to death metal (which I don't listen to any more). Currently, I'm into traditional, glam, thrash, power, and progressive metal, as well as classic hard rock, industrial, and melodic rock/aor.
