American metal vocalist who fronted American thrash metal band Dark Angel from 1988 until the band's dissolution in 1992. He joined Dark Angel's line-up after the departure of previous vocalist Don Doty. After Dark Angel disbanded, he and Dark Angel guitarist Eric Meyer formed Hunger. He's also performed in the Christian thrash metal band Oil, but left in 2004 to pursue other musical interests.


Two of the other members in the '80s Norwalk metal band Messiahs (often mistakenly referred to as Messiah on various websites) that he sang in were Blair Durbin, and guitarist Matt Glover (R.I.P. - also of Anastatsia and Death Construction). It's unknown whether or not Messiahs released a demo.
