My first gig: I was the drummer for a pop punk band based out of Phily PA It was at a metal bar and I was 13. My band mates, who were much older than me, snuck me into play while we were loading in After the show, I got punched in the face by a drunk punk enthusiast. I woke up the next day and realized I wanted to do this for the rest of my life

Hobbies: Working with kids Geo Tracking (which is treasure hunting for Nerds) and collecting vinyl

Favorite movies: Donnie Darko, Eternal Sunshine Of the Spotless Mind, The Dead Poets Society, and anything Judd Apatow has involved himself in

Favorite food: Pizza with french fries on it

Favorite place: Nic'ks Bar, Hollywood Beach, Florida

Bad habits: I like to stick stuff in my ears (I've already cut my ear drum twice but when it itches, it itches right!?)

What I'm listening to nowadays: Mew, Jimmy Eat World, Further Seems Forever, Muse and Paramore (that chick is really hot.)

Coolest thing I've done: I was on tour with this band a couple years ago and I base-jumped off a bridge in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It was the craziest, awesome, most terrifying thing Ive ever done but so worth the risk (Sorry you had to find out this way Mom...)

Most embarrassing moment: I was performing at the Governor's Palace Theatre in Pigeon Forge TN in a musical review show (that should be the most embarassing thing as it is but it gets worse) and I had a quick change before a number I had a solo in. One night I walked out to a sold-out crowd and had forgotten to put on my pants. I didn't realize what I had done until after the number had ended, when we posed for applause. Some dude in the front row yelled "You forgot your pants!!" To make matters worse it was laundry day and I was wearing my last pair of boxers which happened to have a huge hole that exposed my left butt cheek.

Who do you love: Jeff Josh and Grant (They're in the picture behind me). They're by far the best bandmates you could ever ask for. I would like to mention to any ladies out there, however, I am single and would love to replace this answer with a girl's name
