  • What Drives Your Creativity?

    Creativity is a gift that we have to take advantage of, it is something unique in each human being and it is our duty to exploit it to the fullest ... for me the music I listen to and the drummers that inspire me are my source of creation.
  • Why do you choose Vic Firth?

    Because it was always like that ... my father gave me my first pair when I was 12 years old and I think that since then I never used another brand.
