Most memorable SeeD experience: 

There have been too many to choose from already.


Reason you joined SeeD: 

I got asked to make the artwork for the demo, while doing that I got asked to join them on stage for a few songs at  & after doing that we had a lot of drinks and while I was completely out of my head drunk they made me sign a contract that made sure I will have to stay for at least 10 years or they will sue me for everything I have I  guess they enjoyed my company enough to ask me to join the band. 


Has SeeD been what you expected?

What can I say, they are family now and they mean the world to me.
