I was most inspired by friends to pursue music. I wasn't always into metal, but once I heard As I Lay Dying, Thrice and Killswitch Engage I was hooked. I then got into the other genres of metal and found All Shall Perish's album, Awaken The Dreamers. That album changed everything for me. I was later recruited by their ex-guitarist Chris Storey to start a band with him called Smashface. We recorded one album and after several failed attempts at touring we called it quits. I was then approached by Ænimus to join them and here I am. I believe in this band and the people that are in it. I am excited for the future and cannot wait to tour the world.
