    Well…. This is a complicated subject… I have many influences for different things. I’d say my love for music was spawned by bands such as; Lamb of God, System of a Down, Tool, Arsis, Ensiferum, Eluveitie, The Bled, Refused, Knights of the Abyss, Born of Osiris, As I Lay Dying, Job For a Cowboy, Nevermore, Trauma, In Flames, DevilDriver, Arch Enemy, Strapping Young Lad, Wintersun, Nevermore, Opeth, The Black Dahlia Murder, Genesis, Amon Amarth (These bands are my favorites, I listen to a lot more.. But these are the Elite)

    When I started drumming I was really into the Offspring. So Ron Welty taught me the art of Hard Rock/Punk drums… Later I focused on learning lots System Of A Down (John Dolmayan). This helped me develop a strong offbeat sense as well as pick up a few jazz techniques that are so badass! After that I had a strong need for technicality, and lusted for Double Bass. I found that in Lamb Of God (Chris Adler). Now these are my primary influences, I’ve learned at least ¾ of the songs from each bands.

    Currently I’m playing/learning from;
    Refused - David Sandström
    DevilDriver - John Boecklin
    The Bled - Mike Pedicone
    Genesis – Phil Collins (Mostly from Abacab)
    Arsis - Mike Van Dyne
    Gojira - Mario Duplantier
    Tool - Danny Carey


    I also acknowledge my good friends and colleagues;
    Chris Andersen – Assyria
    Mark Schulze - Assyira
    Nick Maldonado – Trigger
    Dan Bowey – Trigger

    These guys have given me reason to persist. Without my old bands Trigger & Assyria, I wouldn’t be half the drummer I am today.


    This is where Audio enters the game. After dealing with a few sub-par studios I decided why not do the recording myself. Or at least know going into a studio what I want, and how I want it done.

    Aost of the already mentioned ones and John Henry Bonham, because he can't be mentioned enough.

    Also an alltime fave for his uniqe grooves and particular spaced out hi hat play, Steve White he played with The Style Council and did all of the Paul Weller Solo Albums and lot of session stuff, including some nice acid jazz projects of him.

    I have seen him several times live AMAZING

    I'm a pretty young guy and I'd say my opinions on influential drummers is limited... BUT I must say that if you dig deep into the works of Jason McGerr (death cab for cutie) you will find an extremely well rounded drummer that is able to expand immensely on what we've come to know as "simple" beats. I also quite appreciate the styles of Old John Bonham(Led Zeppelin) have crept back especially with bands like the Dead Weather(Jack White).

    a unique style or lack there of that makes the white stripes music so white stripes.
