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

Drumming strengths:

 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...
