"I play in the bands Turnstile, Angel Du$t, and Praise. I simply love pursuing anything creative with my friends." - Daniel
Turnstile, Angel Du$t, Praise
Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceMany years ago, I was on a tour with three of my bands, playing three sets in a row. I became violently sick after the first set from food poisoning. I was so weak and on the verge of passing out, I didn’t know how I would get through the following two sets. Somehow that instance miraculously unlocked the “moeller” technique for me, out of absolute necessity. Before then I had always choked up on my sticks like a caveman. I’ve played so much more fluidly ever since that night.
What Drives Your Creativity?Other than the natural creative impulse that’s inside all of us, I think the most inspiring thing is blending music, culture, and art. There are so many things to learn. It’s up to you to blend them into your own unique creation.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?The quality of Vic Firth drumsticks speak for themselves. There's nothing out there more consistent and durable. And Eric Gross is an incredible person. Working with Vic Firth is a dream come true.
