I listen mainly to rock and metal, but since I am currently at Perth College I have surrounded myself with many styles and have experiences playing different styles. Main influence has always been Dream Theater and former drummer Mike Portnoy, who showed me so many skills in odd time sigs, fills, progressive grooves and other bands such as Rush, Led zep etc. A lot of my skill has come from listening to Christian metal, rock and hard rock such as Skillet, Fireflight, Nine Lashes, decyfer down, Thousand Foot Krutch, and best of all P.O.D. Also, to widen my skill, i have taken an interest in Hip hop music, just by doing drum covers of rap artists and dubstep music and using my own ideas to contribute to the songs.
