I started playing at 14, and was into early rock and punk. I started playing in my 1st band a year later and never looked back. No formal training, I just learned by watching and taking bits of what I liked and putting my own twist on it. I've been in a handful of bands over the years. My most recent project is Eye Remain. Other than playing drums in this band, I also do a bit of the writing, music, lyrics. And I am the founder. The band was founded in 2006 and is classic hardcore, thrash, etc. In the last 4-5 years I have been the most serious about drumming and I now practice at least 5 days a week. I wish I wouldve been doing that this whole. The trick gear helps me to be able to focus on playing and not worrying about malfunctions. I'm really glad to be here!
