Favorite Paiste Cymbal and Why: 22” Paiste 602 Classic Medium Ride. I can play any style of music with this ride, it blends perfect in any musical situation that requires attention to dynamics. It has an amazing bell sound, amazing stick response and I like that I am able to crash it!

My Best Ever Show: the last tour with Hadise

Favorite Paiste Artist Show I Attended: John Mayer w/Steve Jordan

If I Wasn’t A Drummer, I’d Be A….: Barista at my own coffee shop

What You Can’t Buy With Money: Health and good friends

My Ritual(s) Before A Show and/or a Recording Session: Warm up exercises for my hands and feet

Talisman On Stage and/or In The Studio: Not really a talisman…I just believe in my way of playing and in just being myself. Play like it’s your last time!

Do You Prefer Touring or Recording? Why?: I prefer a nice balance between both of them. When I am in the studio, I miss the energy and vibe from a tour. When I am on tour I miss the moments of creating and the extreme focus on sound and groove in the studio.

Recommendation For A Beginner: Find a good teacher, go to as many live concerts as you can and try to play as many styles as possible. The most important thing is to have fun!
