The first one is called Paradiddle Creativity and the second one is How to practice drums. He also runs a recording and rehersal studio.

Kyle went from a diet of chips and beer to being a vegan on a No Sugar, No Grains diet. He has lost over 70 pounds or 31 kg and runs half marathons on his day off.

Kyle uses his love for baking to bring his closest friends and family together. Kyle worked on his diet, then on his body, then on his mind.

His perspective is definitely more positive.
