If you could be any character from The Lord of the Rings, who would you be and why?
I would be Gandalf. I can't imagine being a wizard would be a bad thing.


What is your favorite album of all time?
My favorite album is A Feber You Can't Sweat Out by Panic! At the Disco. There is a ton of percussion used in this album and it is just so different. I love how they play with minor chords as well.


How long have you been playing your instrument? What made you choose your instrument?
I have been playing percussion for ten years now. I chose percussion because I thought I wouldn't have to learn how to read music. Plus, there weren't any other percussionists so I wanted to be different.


If you could go back in time and meet any composer, who would it be and why?
I would go back and meet Tchaikovsky. He is my favorite composer.
