WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
I am inspired by playing with and watching musicians who love what they do. Guys like John Bonham, Dave Grohl, Chad Smith. Watching someone who plays with passion is much more inspirational to me than watching a highly skilled player who hates his job.
WORDS OF WISDOM FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF DRUMMERS
Practice hard, dream big, and always play like you’re performing to 20,000 people. Also, talent will get you pretty far, but being a kind person who is easy to work with is what will keep you around.
