What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is everything to me. Even if I'm not playing, or listening I will have some kind of rhythm in my head. The only reason I have a day job is so that I can afford to do the things I like to do (music). Playing music gives me a sense of purpose. Like it is what I was meant to do. To be on stage, and be in the zone is the greatest feeling I have ever experienced.

What is your music dream?

I want to create music that matters to people. Something that moves them on the inside, And I would like to be successful enough to quit my day job. Not quite there yet but we are getting close.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

World peace would be nice (Can't we all just get along?). Free health care and food for everyone. not sure if that is possible but I would like to try.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I would ave to say the music of Metallica, Megadeth, and Pantera. the dynamic of those bands really inspired me to become a guitar player.

What inspires you to make music?

I feed off of depression, and anger. My own, not someone else's. I think that is why I don't experience those states long. Its therapy for me.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

At first I get nervous. but once we start playing its like I become someone else. I feel powerful. Like a superhero, and sound is my superpower. Its awesome.

What do you think of Drooble?

So far I am liking it. Love the streaming.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Seeing music being taken out of schools. Music helps with both science, and mathematics. Plus can act as therapy for some. We should be adding not subtracting from education.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

I support as much as i can. Going to shows, buying local band shirts so I can wear them when I preform. Also standing, and cheering. If I have worked with a band before, and they are OK with it. I will help set up and break down equipment.
