i dont know if it was video quality, but it looked like you sliced a bit on your right. tambien, make sure not to re-attack on your rolls, even if its just slightly.

overall, at least in my opinion, work on not pounding your attack and exit notes throughout everything, working on dynamics is always good, and maybe technique(i wouldn't suggest playing with my elbows so far out, but thats me), and get a pair of sticks that have a matched pitch 8)

I think your playing is solid. Especially liking the left hand. You do have a tendency to pound... I think that's too much wrist and not enough fingers. You're just not feeling the legato as well as you could, but that's not too bad.

I think there is nothing you can glean from posting a short video that will take you to the next level. What you need to do is take those skills and go perform. Audition. Do solo & ensemble. Do whatever you can to bolster no just your strength and control but your listening and ensemble skills. Get close to players that are better than you are. Get constant feedback from instructors that know your style.
Without a metronome its not drumming, its just hacking.
