Dagenham, UK (Born in central London)
Have a genuine passion for metal music since a young age and started playing bass in my late teens. After cutting my teeth in a mix of local thrash and death metal bands, am always on the look out for new challenges and to further progress my playing, so the opportunity to join Intense back in 2004 proved to do exactly that. Since then, to date, I've been involved with two studio albums and live shows across the UK and mainland Europe. Which have all been immensely fun to do and look forward to much more in the future!
