A Shared Fire

Surround yourself with people who have the same fire as you do, especially when you are in a position to hire. Hire people who have the same passion as you do for the product, the job and LIFE!


Polite Persistence

Outlive the competition.

When I first arrived in Nashville, people looked at me like, “Who is this kid?” Twenty-one years later I’m still here and I am performing in stadiums with Jason Aldean.

How? Polite persistence and tenacity. Every day.

Music Education

I am a product of music education, and I tell parents if their kids show any interest in an instrument at all to support them 150 percent in their music endeavors.


Find Your Ultimate Purpose

When you stumble (and we all do), if you’re actually in pursuit of what you really want to do in your life, you will get back on track right away. No matter what is going wrong in my life, I know that I can get on a set of drums and be happy. Finding your ultimate purpose is so important. And the sooner you can do it, the better.
