Highlight of your career so far:

Traveling the world and making the best of friends.

Drumming means to me:

 It's not so different from breathing, it has to be done to survive.

Advice for up and coming drummers:

It's better to underplay than to overplay.  Heck, even Jon Bonham could chill out and groove after a solo!

I have stronger thoughts and feelings than most anyone will ever hear.   I am shy and like to hide in the background, but want to be friends with everyone.

That I lived for someone and something bigger than myself and never let my world revolve around me.
