Highlight of your career so far:

man its really so hard to put that in a few words.
it really has been an amazing ride. i guess for me it's really just getting to see that
kids really believe in what we are doing.. and help us to live up to it in a sense.

Drumming strengths:

i don't know really what my strengths are...
i try my hardest not to be generalized but maybe you can come watch me and
tell what you think my strengths are... haha

Drumming means to me:

man a, fun, my means of expression...
there are so many, that naming them all would eventually get boring... to you possibly

Advice for up and coming drummers:

man just be yourself. don't be what someone
else is because you feel you have to meet the status quo. do what you believe in,
love and respect... the rest will show up when it's time

How would you describe yourself:

umm... scattered... striving... reaching, caring
as i can be, saved by grace through faith, a litte messy and a ton headstrong

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

i tried my hardest to finish the race that is life
