Highlight of your career so far:

Opening for InFlames at RAMfest in March this year, and playing live on TV for Idols South Africa 2012 finale (with a viewership of +-3 000 000 people). We ended up not doing the track rehearsed, and because it was live TV, no one could actually stop us!! We are now banned :) Ha ha

Drumming strengths:

Powerfull groove based drummer

Drumming means to me:

Drumming has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. Even before I had touched a drum stick or kit, I knew it was all I wanted to do. When I'm doing medial things, all I can think about is drumming, but when I'm drumming, I think of nothing else :)

Advice for up and coming drummers:

Develop your own style, it is not a competition, play with as many people as possible, and keep at it!! All good things come in time

How would you describe yourself:

A very passionate peoples person, I am helpful and loyal, dependable and love a good laugh. Always keen for a good chat and love swopping information about music and gear

That I was a good solid player, always committed and dependable and rocked out and gave 100% at every show!!
