Started playing guitar when I was about 15 but didn't start taking seriously till I was about 18 or 19. So I have been playing guitar for about 5 or 6 years. I knew the second I saw a guitar I wanted to play live.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
My very first concert was May 9th 2004. I saw Metallica. Went with my friend Paul who really got me into Metallica, The best part about seeing them as my first show was the fact that I was really starting to get into Metal music and Metallica was the first band I got into.
What gear do you use?
I own a variety of guitars but I only use three live. My Guitars are: LTD V-401DX Ibanez RG7321 (Seven String) Jackson USA King.
As of recently I have really loved my 7 string. I swapped out the bridge pick up with a DiMarzio Crunch Lab and that guitar is just amazing now.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Growing up was Metallica, Megadeth, Testament, Carcass and At the Gates. I pretty much got into them through friends.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I currently play guitar in my primary band Endless Chaos and I also play guitar in Accused of Evil. Endless Chaos is Melodic Thrash, it was formed by my brother and I. We played a few shows late into 2011 with the honor of opening up for Holy Grail and Toxic Holocaust. Accused of Evil is a band I recently joined that will be playing shows very soon.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
I will jam with anyone on any level. I find you learn the most by jamming with those both better than you and those who are still learning.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Anything by Animals As Leaders, I find so many new things in the layering of their songs everytime I listen to their songs that it is refreshing.
