Highlight of your career so far:

Signing with Meinl of course. Also the “Extreme the Dojo” Japanese tour, leading into the Thrash and Burn European tour in 2010.  What I can remember was great.                 

Drumming strengths:

I can play with all four limbs at the same time.

Drumming means to me:

Beating things that make noise with two sticks.

Advice for up and coming drummers:

Go to college.  Seriously.  But if you're determined to ruin your life, I would say definitely take drum lessons, at least when you're starting off.  The hardest thing to do is to undo bad habits that have been built up over years and years. Take it from a self taught drummer, find a good teacher.  You will thank yourself forever.

How would you describe yourself:

6’0” Caucasian male (can be mistaken for a girl from behind).

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

F*uck yeah.
