Hobbies: Drumming, I train Brazilian jui jitsu, I love going out and riding my long board down some hills at Iroquois Park, going to concerts and hanging with my friends.

What I'm listening to nowadays: I literally listen to all music, but as of lately I've been listening to a lot of Karnivool, Northlane and Deftones.

Coolest thing I've done: I went to California last year. That was the funnest trip ever. While I was there I got my medicinal marijuana license :)

Most embarrassing moment: Well I embarrass myself on a daily basis but one time I was a St. Matthews mall years ago and this chick had on a shirt that said "save a horse and ride a cowboy" so I wrote my number down on a piece of paper and and folded it up and wrote "cowboy" on the front and gave it to her. Well as I gave it to her, her mom was sittin' beside her and didn't think it was as funny as I did. She was literally yelling cuss words at me in the middle of the mall. Security came and everything. I felt like 1000 people were staring at me.
