Highlight of your career so far:

Playing in 30 different countries. Being in DRUM! Magazine, playing a show with Slayer, Cannibal Corpse, Mastodon, Hatebreed, and Machine Head all in the same day!

Drumming strengths:

Powerful blast, groove, and old school approach.

Drumming means to me:

Having fun making music and fun with your kit, and of course letting out your aggression!!!!

Advice for up and coming drummers:

Learn to crawl before ya walk, don't start out blasting at 260 cause you lose the most important part of drumming and that is having your own style and groove. You don't want to sound like 70 other dudes out there doing the same thing.

How would you describe yourself:

 Fun to be around, down to earth, and ready for anything at anytime!!
