I been passionate about music, and specially metal since I was little, I been in bands, listened to hundreds of records, and assisted to hundreds of live shows. I am a Historian graduated of Arizona State University (ASU) in 2011, I did radio at ASU for about 2 years, and had a metal radio show called The Age Of Metal, which was my inspiration for this blog. During that time also had the chance to interview bands like Dream Theater, Kamelot, Primal Fear, Epica, Testament, Rotting Christ, Etc. I’ve reviewed records and formed a more critical opinion about the music industry and the artists involved

I am an avid photographer and metal fan and decided to combine these two lifelong passions by getting into concert photography. Trying to capture the raw power and energy that the different performers display is one of the things I enjoy most about it. I have traveled an enormous amount of miles going to concerts and for me a show is never too far. Some of my favorite artists are KISS, Aria, Death Angel, Pantera, Holy Grail, and Jeff Loomis.

Armed with a sharp intuition and a relentless passion for metal. Years of raw, hands on experience in the field of photography have taught me to specialize in everything from capturing the moment while being drenched in GWAR blood to blocking the head kicks of flailing crowd surfers to get that shot.
Metal is what inspires me. Music that hits a point where you can feel it. A spark inside that makes you growl and nod your head as the sound lays waste to all else.
