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!
