Music and especially drumming is the reason I get up every day. It's the thing that fills my life with passion, joy, energy and commitment. I definitely wouldn't be the same person without it.

I guess that’s a tough one. In general I am that kinda person who is down for pretty much everything. I try to value the things I have as hard as I can and be thankful for them. Take nothing in this world for granted.

That I never sold my soul and was the best person I was able to be.
