Highlight of your career so far:

Finally feeling like I'm making a difference for people with my art. It's humbling to know you make an impact in someone else's life throughyour own hard work and creativity.

Drumming strengths:

1.) Technique 2.) Hitting my legs on accident

Drumming means to me:

Drumming was a way for me to establish my belief system. It taught me the value of work ethic, discipline, and self respect, resultantly. It's a hugely defining aspect of my life, and my absolute favorite thing to do. I could honestly say I wouldn't be the same without it!

Advice for up and coming drummers:

Be versatile, strive to learn all that you can, and practice yer dang rudiments! Oh, and don't forget to groove.

How would you describe yourself:

An enthusiastic, optimistic, intensely devoted, happener-to-things; a lover of knowledge , people, and a bit of an extremist.

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

My art was impactful;
My character was remembered.
