What I'm listening to nowadays: Love and Death, Filter and Devin Townsend

Coolest thing I've done: Musically, I would say flying down to Phoenix and auditioning for Brian Welch (Love and Death). It was an awesome experience jamming with them and getting second place out of the hundreds of participants. Personally Any time I get to have benefit shows for companies like Relay For Life, American Cancer Society and Toys For Tots is always an honor.

Most embarrassing moment: My first show when my whole entire kit collapsed on me during the set.

Bad Habits: Gambling (ha!) and eating whole pizzas by myself!

When/where did you first get some: I'm still a virgin. Don't hate!

If you could meet a Rockstar (past or present), who would it be, and why: There isn't really anyone left I would want to meet, honestly. I've met everyone who means something to me already. If you aren't talking about rock stars, then my picks would be Vince McMahon and Hulk Hogan. They're rock stars in my eyes, though?

Who do you love: My mom (RIP), family, friends, MH, everyone who has supported me with my music career and come to my shows!
