Living in Pittsburgh
Musical interests:
  • Favourite genres: black metal, post-metal, death metal, sludge, thrash, and a lot of indie rock
  • Favourite bands: Agalloch, Pig Destroyer, Cobalt, Iron Maiden, Primordial, Amon Amarth, Nachtmystium, and too many others to mention.
  • All time favourite album: Queensryche's Operation: Mindcrime
I'm human too:
  • Cool day job: In between right now.
  • Hobbies: cooking, drinking dark beers, complaining about other people's driving
  • Bragging about education/college degrees: bachelor's degree in print journalism from Duquesne University
Other stuff I can be proud of: Married the greatest girl of all time, my wife Christina, in 2010. She detests metal, yet somehow this thing really works!
