I began my interest with music and drumming around age 9. I started playing percussion in elementary school, and was immediately hooked. On Christmas day, when I turned 10 years old, I got my first drum set. In the beginning of my drumming career, I was hardly interested in practicing, but in 2008 Metallica’s “Death Magnetic” was released. That album was all it took to give me the drive to want to practice and create music. I have played drums now for over ten years, and over the course of those years, have performed with some of the biggest names in modern metal. Some of these include Whitechapel, Shadows Fall, The Faceless, Napalm Death, Dying Fetus, Enterprise Earth, Within The Ruins, and many more. I love to work hard day in and day out, as well as pushing my creativity and the boundaries of modern music. Nothing will stop me from obtaining my goals, and I know that if you work hard, anything is possible.
