Favorite Band From High School?
I think I listened mostly to Front Line Assembly, but my old high school CD case was equally loaded with Metallica, Disturbed, Good Charlotte, and Black Eyed Peas. The look on people’s faces when they saw “Monkey Business” next to assorted Metal for the Masses albums was priceless every time.My friends and I would spend hours watching random music videos and one night “Devil In Jersey City” by Coheed and Cambria came on. Everyone else hated the super high pitched vocals but something about it stuck with me. They’ve been my favorite band ever since.
First FiXT Artist You Heard?
I didn’t know it at the time but probably would have been Celldweller when I was playing Need For Speed: Most Wanted back in 2006.
Dream Collab You’d Like to See a FiXT Artist Work On:
I gotta have a collab between The Anix & Celldweller
• Thing To Collect: I wouldn’t say I “collect” animals but I’m starting to think my girlfriend does. Our house is a bit of a zoo. We currently have: 3 Dogs, 2 Cats, 7 Snakes, 1 Bearded Dragon, 1 Leopard Gecko, 1 Beta Fish
• Sports Team: Pittsburgh Steelers
• Video Game: Metal Gear Solid 2
• Movie: Huge horror fan – Evil Dead 2 is probably my favorite movie ever.
We have an incredible roster of very talented artists and a very passionate, hard working staff that go above and beyond. I look forward to coming to work every day, that’s not something most people can say. It’s an absolute pleasure to be able to work with each and every one of you. It’s been crazy to see the growth in the company since I started in 2019 and it’s only going to continue so I’m very excited to be able to help share more of the music with the world.
