I joined the band when I put my profile up on in late 2008. That's when Emi emailed me through the site for an audition. Obviously the auditions went good because I haven't looked back since! I became an official member December 2008.

I have been with the band every step of the way as a contributor in any way I can offer. From being responsible for all our imagery/artwork, to co-writing, to just being the retarded pet monkey of the group, I will continue to dedicate most of my career to this project as it has taken to me levels I didn't think I could reach so soon.

Aside from being a full time LH member, I work as my own musician. Whether it be a contributing member to other projects such as My Mother The Carjacker, working as a solo composer/song-writer/collaborator, or lending my time as a session player, I'm always looking for different ways of expressing myself musically.

In addition to aiming to become a full-time professional musician, I love art and I also work as a graphic designer under Azzurri Designs, which I hope to one day expand into the "Azzurri Media Group", taking on as many media projects as I can. I mainly focus on artwork for the local metal/music community, but wish to expand into other avenues, as well as internationally.

I am very goal oriented and hope to make a career out my endeavours. Despite all this, I'm simple at heart and would like to live comfortably, doing what I love and spend time with family and friends. Until then, it's all the "process of progress".
