Self taught, I began music at 13 (1997) when I formed my first punk band "FUK52" in Cleveland OH, USA the next 10 years I picked up every instrument and played shows weekly with my band consisting of a revolving door of mediocre musicians. In 2008 I found 2 great musicians and we formed a killer project, my brain child "Nightmaremode" I was on Lead guitar and Vocals. The work load was not the lifestlye my rythm section wanted, and they ended up quitting weeks before a 10 day NYC showcase tour, which if you've ever booked in NYC you know how hard it was for a guy from Ohio with no name or fans to coordinate 10 straight days of shows in the city with local heavy hitters. Needless to say my reputation was tarnished pretty hard when I had to cancel the entire tour. From 2009 until 2016 I made primarily "extreme" music I founded "Gomorrahizer" (available on iTunes!) with myself on Lead vocals and drums we played a blend of death metal, grindcore and punk, toured alot but eventually I got sick of training guitar players and temporarily scraped the project In 2013 and began my new even more extreme project called "Extreme Noise Terrier". This band consisted of myself and my wife. We utilized all of our sound and music knowledge to make the most insane music ever heard. On stage we had every instrument we owned and our desktop computer! Some songs had drum playback previously recorded by me, and some songs had guitar playback. There where several songs that I switched instruments mid song playing seamlessly to our timeline. ENT was my personal favorite, we had support from producers and promoters and never had to shell out anything out of pocket, while putting out 2 records a cassette tape, and yes, a floppy disc single. The band flopped in the USA, but Indonesia seemed to love it. We could never afford to play a gig out there. In 2015-2016 I was the frontman for grindcore outfit Drogheda (formed in 1992) This was the only band that I joined and did not start and or write all the music. In 2016 I started my current project "Survivors" this band is a work in progress and designed to expand my musical skills and singing voice. The live show consists of drum playback and video of me drumming on a projector behind myself while I play guitar and sing. My wife picked up the keyboard for this project and is the Jerry to my Layne! Many more projects to come I'm sure!!! I always want to colab
The creation of music is an essential compass point in life.
A consistent and evolving project with a busy schedule.
Get off my wave.
Alice in Chains, Cannibal Corpse, Soundgarden, System of a Down, T-Ride, Cattle Decapitation, Crass
The fact that music exists, and I can make my own.
People are evil. Don't be like people.
I transcend out of my body.
