FAVORITE MEMORIES WITH THE SLANTS:
I really had a great time on the Enter the Dragon tour in 2013. We really started to come together as a performing group about that time.
MOST MEMORABLE SHOW:
For me, your first show tends to be the most memorable. Zenkaikon was my first anime con experience. I was normally used to people being a little more “reserved” when watching music. This was a huge shock for me to see so many fans cutting loose.
BIGGEST SURPRISE MOMENT IN THE BAND:
I really loved playing at anime cons! It was great to actually see the passionate of followers we had. I didn't realize that cons really existed. I knew of comic conventions but anime conventions were a whole new strange and amazing experience. We got to meet so many great people and it was fun to hang with con-goers.
MOST PROUD OF:
I learned a lot being in The Slants. I was personally was most proud whenever we put on a great show and we could feel the energy of the crowd responding to us. There were many times it happened but that's when we really felt like a cohesive group.
THESE DAYS, I'M UP TO...
Music, music, music :) I'm still singing and playing guitar with The Adarna and recording our 4th album. I play bass in a supergroup called Death by Overkill and I've been using this time during COVID to train and teach.
