Pre-Show Rituals

Before a show, I always like to stretch out, and get my blood flowing. Then I will sit down and work on my paradiddles. Sometimes if it gets late, I'll drink a red bull or a coffee for a little pick me up!

What I Do For Fun

In my free time back at home, I like to spend it with my loved ones and friends, they mean everything to me. For work, I own a small painting business around northern Seattle. I also love to snowboard, skateboard, go to movies and more importantly relax!
