Highlight of your career so far:

ceativity, power, velocity.
Drumming means to me:
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.
Advice for up and coming drummers:
Take your time, practise every day and play along to your favourite records. Never forget why you first picked up a pair of drumsticks. And play with all your heart!
How would you describe yourself:
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.
