If you want to know more about me you can check out my Live Journal
Simple life with a complex mind... As of 2006 I have taken many steps in new directions to try to change the negative aspects in my life. So far, I have been sucessful.. now a little bit of background info about me!:
- -At the age of 23, most of my life has had many ups and downs, but I would like to think that it has molded me into something I can be proud of.
- -Born, raised, and living in New Jersey... I am not sure I can not live anywhere else. This is where my heart is (meaning my friends and family!)
- -I am heavily involved in promoting and partying in the goth/industrial scene.. however, I refuse to call myself "goth". I kind of cringe when people label themselves this... especially the Hot Topic generation and the people who know nothing about the music.
- -I have the greatest friends a person can ask for. They are loving, supportive and everything that keeps me smiling. I would be lost without them <3
- -I have two wives and I love them dearly.. however I am indeed single lol (yes this makes sense)... and I will not put up with people who are uncomfortable with that fact..If you don't accept it.. then you don't accept me.
- -I love to dance.. I might not be the best dancer in the world, however this is the best way for me to deal with a difficult week. Nothing is better than angry music, good drinks, and being surrounded by friends!
- -You can find me every Thursday night at Club Pyramid for Cybertron (Much love to DJ's Jet and Audiophile!) as well as (some) Fridays and (every) Saturday down at QXT's in Newark! Support the Scene god damnit!
- -I come across as being very confident, but I have many insecurities. I have dealt with a lot of dark thoughts over the years, but I am trying to change all of that for the better!
- -I am a Felician College graduate as of May 2006 and I plan on one day being self-employed. I have so many goals and I am going to do everything in my ability to accomplish every one of them!!
- -Along with my darling Wizzle Steph, I co-run the new promotional group called XOX. Promotions.
- -I do not understand people who get off on *trying* to torture one another. It is such a waste of life. Live to improve who you are, not to try to destroy someone else... it is a waste of time and it will ultimately come back to bite you in the ass one day.
Meet Spank! lol
ABOUT XOX. Promotions
XOX. Promotions [XOX.] is a group that is designed to give exposure to growing artists in their many forms within the underground scene. We are an advocate for up.and.coming bands, already-established artists and thriving fashion designers. Here you will find a collection of reviews and interviews, links to web shops for clothing + accessories aimed toward darker-minded and unique individuals, as well as local, national and international club listings and events.
United by the universal language of music, one objective of XOX. is to help unsigned and unknown musicians broaden their audience and expose their talent for synthesized beats, harsh vocals and club-thumping audio assaults on the gothic/industrial [under]world. For this, we are seeking gifted bands + musicians in the genres of EBM, synthpop, industrial/noise, rock and metal. Our mission is to raise auditory awareness and help facilitate the discovery process that takes bands to nationwide and, eventually, worldwide recognition.
Our ultimate commitment is to network and befriend other promoters, musicians, DIY and original clothing designers, models, photographers, artists, DJs and clubs/venues who share an interest in strengthening and nourishing the community.
