Drumming means to me:
For me it's an endless journey to always improve myself, and learn as much as possible. Also I like the physical demands of the instrument.
Advice for up and coming drummers:
Learn as much as possible, and practice a lot while you still have the time for it. Also learn what you can from other drummers, but don't imitate them.
How would you describe yourself:
Musically I see myself as very open minded regardless of genre or new ideas. Personally I'm too much of a perfectionist sometimes. Too high expectations of myself of what I can actually do. But that's where my high ambitions kick in, which must be a good thing.
When I look back on my life one day, I would like to be able to say:
I did my best
