Highlight of your career so far:
Being able to tour, and play on the same stage as Glenn Danzig. Who was playing at the very first metal concert I attended in 2001.
Being able to pick up a beat in a moment's notice, which is how I got my current position with my band. I also feel my imagination is my strength. I add a lot of nick knacks to feel up loose beats.
Drumming means to me:
It means the opportunity to express my passion for music and artistic talents.
Advice for up and coming drummers:
Always be confident in yourself, and believe that anything is possible with dedication
How would you describe yourself:
A bit energetic and random most of the time. Family and music are the heart and soul of who I am.

That it was an awesome journey with no regrets, with memories that will one day inspire future drummers of all ages.
