He received his first guitar at the age of 14 but played only intermittently as his priority at the time was his martial arts.
He joined Cradle Of Filth in 1992 and remained with them until 1996 when he left to join The Blood Divine. In 1998 he formed the "Lilith" project which went on to become Primary Slave, however he left this group just prior to them signing a record deal in 2000 to rejoin Cradle Of Filth at the behest of Dani Filth.
Now living in the USA and during a break from Cradle Of Filth he decided to concentrate full time on his band White Empress and eventually decided to leave Cradle Of Filth. Securing a record deal with Snapper Music, White Empress is currently distributed by Peaceville Records.
