What instruments do you play and how long have you been playing?
I've played guitar for about 11 years and bass for a few months. I basically bought a bass to play in Leather Duchess, but I must say I'm really getting into being a bass player. There’s less pressure to play well and more freedom to bang my head on stage.

Who are your biggest influences as a bassist?
Probably Duff McKagan because of his punchy and punky (is that even a word?!) bass lines.

How many packets of sugar does a standard 8 oz. cup of coffee require to achieve optimal sweetness?
I like to think that the cup of coffee loves Def Leppard and they're always singing Pour Some Sugar On Me, so probably 8 or 10 packets of sugar will do.

Legend has it you were born in the United States but grew up in Brazil. What inspired your return to the homeland?
(inspiring background music playing...) Well, as a young soul looking to find it's place and meaning in this crazy beautiful world, I felt the need to change my life in order to grow spiritually and discover who I am.
