I think music is a form of communication that transcends written and spoken word. I try to communicate via a mix of emotions in my tracks that I guide towards you.

Started making music when I was 14, the year was 1986. I played in a punk band called Crisis. It still is a very appropriate band name I think.

Everything of anything really, can be a line of a novel, or a quote on tv or a car passing by playing some tune really loud. Small triggers inspire me to start working.
