My interest in Gothic literature and media is complemented by an interest in goth, industrial, and electronic music. As DJ cypher, I have been active as a club, radio, and internet DJ since 1994.


Initiated in 2002 when my current location in Michigan limited opportunities to DJ live events, Dark Nation Radio, a program focusing on new goth, industrial, and intelligent electronica, is now among the most-established and longest-running "dark music" programs on the web. The program airs weekly on Sunday evenings from 9 - 11 PM EST on Spirit of Resistance Radio.

Archived programs can be found on my Mixcloud page.  Please follow me there!

Here are a few direct links to a handful of my favorite programs:

I have held DJ residencies at Contempt NYC and BOUND DC. I both hosted and DJed for the Darkwave Lounge (Michigan) and BOUND Hartford.


Guest spots have included Convergence X (Chicago), Dracula's Ball (Philadelphia), Ghoul School (Hollywood), Endless Night (New Orleans), and House of Voodoo (San Francisco).  In April of 2015 I was the featured DJ at the 20th anniversary event for Philadelphia's Dancing Ferret Concerts.
