Highlight of your career so far:
I can't really pick the one highlight, but it will probably either involve a huge crowd and a killer show or the regular gig that surprisingly turns out to totally explode. I like surprises. Preferably the good one's... And generally my path has just been paved with highlights
Powerful, musical, reliable
Drumming means to me:
I feel blessed to be able to do the thing I love most and make a living out of it.
Advice for up and coming drummers:
Practice as much as you can and join a band with people who are more experienced than you are. A technique that uses the physics of drumming instead of working against them will help to improve every aspect of your playing.
How would you describe yourself:
Friendly, outgoing, little lazy.
When I look back on my life one day, I would like to be able to say:
Nice one! Better than the last time I was around here...
