Hi. My name is Roman, and I’m a guitarist, composer, and orchestrator for the Romantic Metal band Astral Eyes.
Over the years, I’ve developed some pretty cool skill sets that got me from a broke ass dude living in a Ford Taurus to being financially well off. I’d love to share everything I’ve learned over the years with you because I believe that anyone can do what I did. I’m not in any way genetically better than anyone else. I’m also not luckier than anyone else.
The secret is I’m insanely driven. I can teach you how to focus. I can teach you how to be healthy. And I can even teach you how to be more physically attractive and to age more slowly. Yes, that too takes work.
Long term though, I’m promoting my band. We will someday be a household name and tour the world. Even when we’re on tour though, I want to develop relationships with other driven people because some of you will be working directly with me someday. No, that’s not a joke. I’m looking for other creative people to work with because we’re looking to start something really big.
Definitely bookmark this page and come back often. I try to write every single day, even when I’m overseas. We travel a lot because I’m in an alpha alpha marriage where we both work to get what we both want. We think win/win, and have a much different mentality than normal people.
If you come here for entertainment, great. If you come here to better yourself, great. And if you come here because you like good music, then we’ll give you good music.
Stick along, my friends
Stick along for the ride as it’s going to be an interesting one. I’ll hide nothing from you, so you’ll get to see what I’ve done right and also how I’ve flopped. I’m quite possibly the most honest person you’ll ever meet.
And together, you’ll see not only a band rise from obscurity to fame, but an entire art movement. When we start building a following, expect a lot of copycats. I don’t get offended at all because I know imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Besides, I compose the music and create the art that I want to hear and see.
Occupation – Musician and orchestrator for the band Astral Eyes
Influences – Lots. Main ones are Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Brahms, Judas Priest, Randy Rhoads, Ritchie Blackmore, Wagner, Mendelssohn, Chopin, and HIM.
Goals – Compose two great symphonies, one ballet, one violin concerto, one serenade for strings, and at least five great albums. Visit all 50 states and fill my passports up with stamps. Create a non-profit to buy land for wolves, and also create a scholarship for orchestral musicians and put it in my mother’s name as that was her life goal.
Greatest accomplishment – It has yet to happen.
Biggest fear – Not accomplishing my goals
Favorite food – An American steak or sashimi
Favorite drink – Honestly, water or good coffee. On the rare occasions I drink nowadays, I’ll have red wine.
Favorite place to be – Performing live. The recording studio is a close second. With my wife at the Ballet is third. On a beach in the Caribbean is definitely up there too.
Status – Married
Kids? – One. He just finished serving his country.
Morning or night person? – Night for sure. I’d want to be a vampire if it wasn’t for their garlic problem.
Favorite holiday – Halloween. Even got married on Halloween and one hard rule I live by – I don’t work on either Halloween or my birthday.
Favorite spice – Black pepper. Lots of it
Must read articles – Lots. Whatever you’re looking for, whether it’s health, wealth, or how to be sexier, I’ve written about it. But most of all, my biggest gripe is the average person barely has more culture than your average yak. Thus, I hope people read my article on my favorite pieces of the Romantic era and actually listen to some of those pieces.
