Highlight of your career so far:

Winning the G.C. Drum Off was one of them. However, being a part of the Meinl family is another. Hard to say which is THE highlight. Both are a dream come true! 

Drumming strengths:

I listen to the musicians I'm playing with and we create. I don't get too absorbed in just my drum part. I believe that's very important.

Drumming means to me:

My way of expressing and communicating what's on my mind or in my heart without words.

Advice for up and coming drummers:

Believe in yourself. Don't give up. And always remember, Practice makes Permanent. Be sure to practice the right things…including your thought process.

How would you describe yourself:

Happy, grateful and blessed.

When I look back on my life one day, I would like to be able to say:

I gave it all i had and have no regrets.
