I was born April 9, 1994. Music has always been a very big part of my life ever since I was a small child. My dad had me listening to Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, The Cars, and many others. By the time I was in Kindergarten I had already discovered Blink-182 and New Found Glory. Those two bands kinda made my path if you will. I didn’t start drumming until I was about 11 or so but when I was 3 I would always find a way to make noise with these little plastic drumsticks I had. I didn’t really ever take myself seriously as a musician until I first heard August Burns Red (more specifically, Matt Greiner, their drummer). I remember I first heard the song ‘Up Against the Ropes’ and I said, “I want to recreate that”. Some drummers that really inspire me have got to be, Matt Greiner (August Burns Red), Danny Carey (Tool), John Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Mike Kennedy (The Wonder Years), Riley Breckenridge (Thrice), Phil Selway (Radiohead), Andrew Tkaczyk (The Ghost Inside), Mackie Jayson (Madball, Cro-Mags, Bad Brains), Daniel Davison (Norma Jean, Underoath), Cyrus Bolooki (New Found Glroy), Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Scream, Them Crooked Vultures, Queens Of The Stone Age) and that’s just to name a few.
Recently, I have been playing a lot of melodic hardcore, pop-punk, ska-punk, and good ole’ metalcore. Also, I am in a band out here on Oahu called Still To This Day. We are hard to categories musically but for the most part we are a metalcore band with a pop-punk influence. Thanks for taking the time to read about me!
