My favorite aspect of being in a band is... Getting to play music with my friends and seeing people react to it. Nothing cooler than seeing someone dancing or singing along at a show.

I've learned the most from... My friends/bandmates have taught me a lot. I started playing shows when I was twelve and have been in a ton of bands since then. Some stuff has just kind of clicked along the way.

I'm most inspired by... If I had to list who or what inspires me as a musician I would be here all day. Overall, I am most inspired by my friends and family. Anything or anyone that makes me feel strong emotion really.

What I like most about St. Louis is... Driving around the city discovering all of these awesome little businesses. Bars, restaurants, comedy clubs. There's a lot to do if you know the right places.

Some of my favorite local bands are... Tok rules. Scene of Irony is really awesome. I also really dig the Rum Drum Ramblers.

The St. Louis music scene could use... A larger following. There are so many good artists in this city who need to be discovered.

The best post-show food in St. Louis is... Guerilla Street Food. Hands down. You just gotta catch them when the truck is in business.

My favorite aspect of being in a band is... The satisfaction of your hard work and hours of practice paying off. It's really awesome to hear songs coming together and starting to groove more and more. It's also cool getting paid for doing what you love, even if it's not much.

I've learned the most from... Musically, I'd say I've grown the most from just playing with more experienced musicians. I've been playing drums for about ten years now, and I've been fortunate enough to always have had friends who were very skilled musicians.

I'm most inspired by... My friends are probably my biggest influences/inspirations. I grew up playing music with my close friends, and I've really grown a lot as a musician from that. Prior to joining the Langaleers, it'd been a few months since I had played drums and the guys really inspired me to start playing again. I also really dig Bruce Lee.

What I like most about St. Louis is... The diverse and awesome people and all of the things to do. We usually meet some really awesome people at our shows no matter which venue or what band we're playing with.

Some of my favorite local bands are... I really like So Many Dynamos, though I'm not sure if they're still playing shows. Tok is also really awesome, and the Baslers are probably some of the funniest and strangest people I've ever met.

The St. Louis music scene could use... More venues with free pizza buffets. There has been a void in my soul ever since Lemmons closed.

The best post-show food in St. Louis is... Strange Donuts. I just can't stop eating them. Though, the BP slinger from the Benton Park Cafe is also one of my favorite things in the world.
