Drumming since:

1996 I think..I'd always play my friends drums and then i finally got my own kit about a year later

Car that you currently drive:

It's funny you aksed, short story..When i joined this band i drove up from Atlanta to New York in my black 99 civic SI with about 1500 $ audio system recently installed. 3 days after being ther, it got stolen.

Not counting on drums what do you do for fun:

I'm from the south, which means I like to drink beer and go fishing. All of which is true. I play video games quite a bit too.

Favorite Food:

Cluck-U chicken, They have the best fried chicken I've ever had

Favorite Drink:

Water and beer, straight up!


Self taught with a few teachers along the way

Highlight of your career so far:

I've already done so much in this band. I'd have to say playing on Jimmy Kimmel or playing at the 2007 VMA's

Drumming strengths:

Dynamics and creativity

Drumming means to me:

I'm really not sure whre I would be if I didn't have drums in my live. I'd probably be playing baseball in college or something, which isn't bad, but I wouldn't give up drums for anything

Advice for up and coming drummers:

I think the most important thing is to never give up. You can always be better. Also, hitting hard all the time isn't exactly the best thing to do. Dynamics is very important, knowing how and when to play at different volumes.

How would you describe yourself:

I would have to say.."I'am the guy who is pretty much down for anything, very outgoing, always trying to have a good time. If you come to one of our shows, come find me, we'll hang out.

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

"I really did that?! really??
