Fan of live metal and photography. Since moving to London, my love of live music reached a point I wouldn’t have imagined possible a few years earlier. Whole subgenres of metal I never really knew about have come forth and shaken up my understanding of what metal is and what it can be. I’m also an aspiring photographer, so I can often be found with a camera in hand, trying to capture bands in various venues around London.
