What are the top 3 gigs you’ve ever been to?
Tool - Barrowlands, Glasgow playing on their Lateralus tour. Amazing AV setup which synced with the band throughout the show.
Anaal Nathrakh - Playing at Damnation Festival, Leeds. Quality relentless metal, backed up with true quality musicianship.
Nine Inch Nails - Meadowbank Stadium Edinburgh. NIN, stadium gig, live. Need I say any more?

Musical weapon of choice?
For both live and in the studio, I play a custom configured 6 piece electronic drum kit. This is comprised of Hart Dynamics Pro Pads, Roland V-Cymbals, Roland MDS-25 rack, all running through to a Roland TD30 brain. It doesn't get much better than that for customisable, full-level percussive assault!

If you could jam with any of your music heroes (dead or alive), who would it be?
I'd love to spend some time jamming or in the studio with Trent Reznor. I'm a massive fan of his work and production skills.

Favourite horror film?
Let The Right One In - Original Swedish version. Brilliantly atmospheric, with a killer soundtrack.

Your favourite gear that you constantly use?
My trusty MacBook Pro. From triggering audio live on stage, through to studio production work, I couldn't be without it.

Do you have any non-music related hobbies outside of work?
Outside of music, I hold a keen interest in fitness. I enjoy a wide range of resistance and cardio-based training, and have worked as a personal trainer.
