I was inspired to take up the bass guitar in July 2000 due to the apparent lack of bass players in the local metal scene. Two months later I found myself with a surprising offer to join the band now known as ShadowPlay, whom I had a great admiration and respect for. This led to a very intense time of developing my skills as a bass player by learning the songs now on the "ShadowPlay" album, and learning to make my own contributions to the style and direction of our music.
