I started playing guitar in 1995 when I convinced my Dad to get me an electric guitar and amp. I also had a short lesson book that showed how to play "Ode to Joy". I quit playing for 6 months until a friend showed me how to play "Glycerine" by Bush before we walked to school one day. In 1996 my Grandma gave me her old stereo system and in 1997 I started recording stuff (with friends or by myself) onto cassettes with a microphone plugged into the tape deck. In 2000 a friend showed me how to program drums and record onto a computer, and in 2001 I finished my first solo album at 18 years old while I was honing my skills to form a band one day. I didn't know any drummers who wanted to play blast beats, so in 2002 I started playing drums myself on a kit of junk that included two broken cymbals, a snare drum with no bottom skin, and a cardboard box with weights inside as a bass drum, until my friend was ready to sell me his kit in 2003. Since then, I've been consistently releasing new music year after year with no end in sight.

I always thought my main creative outlet for music would be in a band setting, but eventually realized that I was getting enough fulfillment and fun out of making music by myself.
