Born in the hell-fire of San Jose, California, Haze grew up as an only child, quietly developing a morbid fascination for blood and gore, behind the well-tempered guise of dry humour. His first instrument was a purple guitar, a present from his Uncle. Although this was never played, Haze’s fascination with the stringed beast grew as he looked upon it’s gruesome beauty.

As adolescence took hold, Haze brought his own guitar from the unglamorous premises of a pawn shop; “I brought my first guitar at a pawn shop. I was horrible, all I could do was strum it and make awful noise. I didn’t even have an amp”. Over the next four years, as Haze grew, so did his playing. Helped by tuition and a tunnel vision desire to play, Haze spent many hours alone in the darkness, his friend a six stringed screamer. The craft became an obsession as he practised for eight hours a day and feed from his friends.
