  • Most memorable Next-Level Performance

    Recently I played at the Foro Sol stadium in Mexico City to 65,000 people. That was quite a buzz.
  • What Drives Your Creativity?

    Listening to new music and finding new sounds. I love going to gigs as a punter as well as playing them.
  • Why do you choose Vic Firth?

    I've only ever used Vic Firth so for me any other brand of stick just feels wrong. Its a nice feeling of home!
