Drumming means to me:

Honest expression of art, dance, and life. A powerful tool for communicating ideas, joy, and one's unique interpretation of rhythm and music in general. One of the worlds great story telling tools.

Advice for up and coming drummers:

Practice and study hard, but always remember to enjoy the music. Don't let your ego get in the way, and remain open minded and humble. Remember to find your own voice. 

How would you describe yourself:

It's very difficult for me to describe myself.  I think that I am open minded, but disciplined at the same time. Sensitive and caring, but strong. I like to bring different elements together and create new things.

When I look back on my life one day, I would like to be able to say:

I would like to be able to say that I am proud of what I've done. I would also like to say that I'm proud of how I went about doing it. If I am able to inspire people and turn them on to a new way of thinking about drumming, music and life, then I would be very happy about that. I would also like to have some fun and enjoy that process along the way.
