Personal statement (Year 2003)
As long as I can remember I have lived in a fantasy world, completely estranged from reality. I woke up three years ago, with a “this can’t be happening” buzz that has burrowed itself deeply into my soul. Momentary escapes are few and far between and often less genuine than I’d prefer. I feel that I have lived only briefly in my years. When I'm in love on rare locations and when I'm on stage with my band mates. Pride became the turning point in my life that released both negative and positive powers of my mind. Disturbing as this may seem, the pain & fear derived from love, together with anger derived from pride, burdens me daily like a relentless shadow. Outside of music my interests include Video Games, Technology, World War II, World History & Politics.
