I used to take lessons with Billy Ashbaugh ( Nsync, Pat Benatar, Nick Carter, etc.). He really helped open up my mind as a drummer & especially as a musician. He's a good buddy now.

Highlight of your career so far:

My career is just now kicking off; so I'd have to say that it's a highlight every time we play to a sold out show and kids I don't know are singing along to every word!

Drumming strengths:

Consistency, good velocity & energy! I'm working on my gospel chops :)

Drumming means to me:

Just sitting behind my drumset without even playing brings me so much comfort & ultimate happiness. Drumming & making music means everything in my life! I get goosebumps every time..... for real.

Advice for up and coming drummers:

This is for all drummers; love what you do! Be the realest you can be behind your drums & put full passion into it. If you're an up and coming drummer; start discovering what it is you love about drumming & don't ever give up on that.

How would you describe yourself:

I have a passionate & driven personality. I can be really intense at times because of it... hahaha... But all in all I'm a young kid who loves to party and have a great time traveling & performing!

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

 I lived my life to the fullest & created music that left lasting impressions on millions!
