I was first exposed to the goth scene via the song Dark Romantics when I was 14, and I've been exploring the social and academic aspect of the subculture I call home ever since. I was a live goth and industrial DJ for a number of years, beginning when I was 19. I created the moniker DJ Count, and have gone by "The Count" since then. I have been married since late 2012, and am a father to a beautiful baby bat named Link.

I began podcasting back in February of 2008 when I launched The Requiem Podcast. Then having been frustrated with the lack of goth talk radio shows, I launched Cemetery Confessions in February of 2014. Then, wanting to build on the success of the latter, I launched The Belfry Network in 2014 to continue to support quality goth audio content and the goth community as a whole.

You can find some personal videos about me including my goth wedding on YouTube.

Aside from having a passion for the goth community, I am also passionate about sociology, consider myself a nerd, a gamer (video and tabletop), a horror movie fan, a beer connoisseur, an intellectual, and a secular humanist. You can e-mail me at, Cemetery Confessions [at] gmail [dot] com
