Had a nice catch up with Devin Townsend last night at Byron’s bday party. I’m very happy for Dev and really excited to hear all of his new album, Empath. He sounds like he’s in a great place. All the best to him moving forward... he’ll kill it like always!
I’d also like to thank Dev for the combined 10+ studio and live albums I got to play on. I built my name as a professional drummer through Dev’s music. I worked my ass off, but Dev chose me to drum. Thanks brother. I’m grateful for u choosing me to drum & all we did together 🙏 ... See MoreSee Less
Hey Everyone, I recorded drums on this song a couple years ago for a very good and longtime friend of mine, Victor Szabo. When I moved to Vancouver he was one of the first musicians I worked with and recorded music with. Vic has entered his song into a contest. The link is attached, check the song out, vote and let’s get Victor into the 2nd round!
I had fun reconnecting with Vic and recording this tune. It kinda reminded me a bit of Faith No More. One of my all time favourite bands. Vic is the guy who introduced me to them back in the day! Pretty cool how life works in the end.... check it out and vote away!
These dudes!!!! A great hang with some good drumming buddies a couple weeks ago at the Toontrack NAMM party. Tomas Haake (Meshuggah) and Elliot Hoffman (Car Bomb).

I'm proud to be part of this years DAY of DRUM - Nanaimo Drum Festival on Friday April 5th, 2019. I've never done a drum clinic on Vancouver Island, which is where I was born, grew up and lived until I was 17, before moving to Vancouver. It's going to be a great time and hopefully I'll get to see some friends there too! Looking forward to this clinic 🙂 All info is on the poster attached below: ... See MoreSee Less

Got to meet and hang out with Eloy Casagrande (Sepultura) last night at NAMM. Such a nice guy with some great stories. He also happens to be one of the most bad ass drummers in metal today. Such an amazing talent on the drum kit! Good times at NAMM.
