I create very synth heavy music, with a hint of pop and metal.
4. What do you enjoy the most about the process of making music?

5. What are some of your favourite themes to explore through your music?
I like to talk about personal experiences a lot. I used to keep that to myself, but found that it helps me mentally to be able to be open about the darker part of me.

You are never alone. There is always someone who feels the same way you do; it never hurts to reach out.

I am going to be touring this September – December in the US and the UK. I hope to see you at a show!
