  • Most memorable Next-Level Performance

    When I was Musical Director for the Bermuda Idol, I realized that this is where I need to be. The ability to play such an integral part in a fast moving environment like that and to rely on my team was amazing.
  • What Drives Your Creativity?

    FEAR! Fear of being a "Carbon Copy". I never wanted to sound like everyone else. Whilst embracing all of my influences and their impact on my playing style, I wanted to make sure I sounded like Me in the end! Additionally a lack of fear, not being afraid to take risks and put myself, flaws and all, on display has driven my creativity.
  • Why do you choose Vic Firth?

    I choose Vic Firth because I can count on their consistency. I don't have to worry if my sticks will feel hollow. Also, I really enjoy being a part of such a legacy that has contributed so much to the community.
