A punk rocker develops a fascination for horror and sci-fi fiction at a young age. The two (three?) worlds collide in a cacophony of power chords, d-beats, synths, loops, black hair dye and eyeliner.
Primarily a drummer but I'm a bit of a jack-of-some-trades-master-of-none. I also dabble in guitar, bass, piano, singing and programming.
I'm used to Cubase SX running Waves and EZdrummer but since my PC died I'm between computers and, therefore, DAWs. We'll see.

Greg Graffin runs into Martin Gore at a NIN show circa 1995 and they begin to write songs together. Gary Numan and Steven Wilson agree to co-produce and the team invites Joe Strummer, Burton C. Bell, Captain Sensible, Siouxsie Sioux, cEvin Key, Patricia Morrison, Jaz Coleman and Derek Grant to take part. Davey Havok turns up randomly at the studio, lights lots of candles and does everyone's nails. Somewhere, Robert Smith smirks in approval. Years later, Jayce Lewis will record a cover version of "Triffids".
...work as a waitress in a cocktail bar. That much is true.
