“LIGHTING UP ON STAGE BEHIND MY DRUM SET HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY DESIRE AND LIFE GOAL. WE NEVER KNOW WHAT TOMORROW BRINGS, MY FATHER HAS ALWAYS TOLD ME TO AIM FOR THE STARS AND TO NEVER STOP TILL I GET THERE. I KNOW HE IS RIGHT AND THAT NOTHING SHOULD BE TAKEN FOR GRANTED. THIS IS WHY I CHOOSE TO PRACTICE EVERYDAY, TO MAKE MYSELF A BETTER MUSICIAN, TO WORK MY HEART OUT WITHOUT PUTTING BOUNDARIES!”
