Drumming strengths:

I can hit real hard and have pretty high endurance.

Drumming means to me:

Its the time where i can be alone and do what i love! Even if there's a crowd watching us, I'm still in my own world just being so thankful for being able to do what i do! It means everything to me.

Advice for up and coming drummers:

(Like you aint heard this a million times..) But seriously, practice! Spend like 3 hours in your garage playing (or wherever you practice) Set goals for yourself and don't move on until you achieve them. And you can ALWAYS get better. Learn from other drummers, and never think you're as good as you'll get. Always room for improvement

How would you describe yourself:

oh daggum.. tall, skinny, super competitive (sometimes too much) drinks too much coffee, watches Lord of the rings almost every week, and loves BBQ and sweet tea.
