Highlight of your career so far:

Going overseas is always a pleasure but going to Japan twice in four months was amazing. I love that country.

Drumming strengths:

I like to draw strenghts from as many drummers as I can, especially anyone who plays with character, I've been inspired by some great local drummers as well as some of the big names.

Drumming means to me:

It gives me the strenght to belive that anything is possible if you work hard enought at it.

Advice for up and coming drummers:

I think practice is most effective if done in an organised way, write down everything you've learned, and everything you want to learn, it's something I picked up from Thomas Lang.

How would you describe yourself:

Trust me, you don't want to go into that one, we haven't got all day.

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

Woe', that was fun.
