1. I have green eye’s, but have wondered what it’d be like if I had Blue eyes. haha

2. I used to wear Jnco jeans when I was younger,… The longer the pockets and the bigger the bottom of the jeans, the BETTER!! haha,

3. My first instrument I started learning was Piano @ 7yr’s of age

4. My Second Percussion (Conga’s, Djembe, Bongos)

5. My 3rd, Drumset at age 9

6. My Mom gave me my first lessons on drumset

7. I grew up on a hobby farm, Every day I had to feed and water our 28 sheep and other random animals..

8. My grandpa almost let me drown in the Wisconsin river once! My brother Markus saw me and realized I wasn’t joking and helped me… haha

9. I enjoy City and Country living… I’d wish to live in California or New York, with another home in Kauai HI. Aloha oi!! haha

10. Man, I have 15 more to go after this!! …ok, I’ll come up with something… 😛

11. One time my brother and I when we were like 7 – 12yrs old were playing darts against a dart board hanging on our basement stairs., Well, my sister came down the stairs (And we weren’t very good), … I missed and it went in her arm. … I tried to keep her from crying… ha

12. I love the healing the Sun brings.

13. Asian (I mean to say asian, cause there’s so many variations!) and Italian food are probably my most favourite flavours in the wOrLd!

14. God gave me my Pair of conga’s… due to a leader sharing a story at this Conference of me emptying my account to purchase a Djembe’ to worship the Lord with. … It ended up around that time I was looking for conga’s, but had no money… By the end of the conference I had $419, people were stuffing my 13 or 14yr old pockets with cash!! $425 was how much my Traditional Series Toca conga’s were.

15. I love to Run long distance, end of 2 years ago through last August,.. I was running 1-2miles every day I had free!

16. Bob Jones called my stomach my ‘groceries… Growing up next door 1 – 3 he’d say ‘show me your groceries!’ ..

17. Yes,.. I had a gut, it just shot straight out. Even to this day, if I’m feeling well, I can shoot my gut out!… BUT… I’ve been trying to cut it out, cause I don’t want it to get stuck in the ‘large’ position… ha

18. I love to drive fast!… I used to have motorcycles, 3 wheelers, Snowmobiles, … All of them I’d go faster than I was supposed to!..

19. for about 2 years, I slept with a yo-yo on my finger… Occasionally I pull it out, honoring my child hood passion for the round piece of plastic on a string. ha

20. I was taught to eat everything on my plate, and If I made a face or said I didn’t like it, I’d get a double portion.

21. I learned from “20”, and to this day, I will eat almost anything and not say ‘I don’t like it’,… UNLESS! you want my honest opinion. haha

22. I’m now 22, and have no grandkids. what’s up with this! lol

23. I made my first website at 17… http://www.geocities.com/drums4ministry/index.html I haven’t touched it in a long while!! haha

24. If I could Play drums, on a surfboard, while holding my wife next to me and having my Kids on my lap, and worshipping the Lord… I think that’d be the best sport EVER created.

25. I can’t wait to go to Africa and learn from the tribes and Kids that made the Rhythm’s I love!…
