My love affair with drums and drumming began at an early age and I have become a lifelong student of this amazing instrument with a passion to play and push myself to new levels as a drummer and musician. With years of touring, recording and drum education experience, my interests in drumming continue to grow and evolve. Although I don't know how music and drumming will sound, look and feel in the future, I do know that I will be a part of it. My passion and desire to play the drums will continue and I will be playing the drums somewhere, continuing to learn, grow and educate.

What Drives Your Creativity?In a nutshell, being the best drummer and educator that I can possible be drives my creativity everyday. I am always working to create what I have not yet heard or seen done before.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?My favorite Vic sticks are Corpsmaster Ralphie Jr. Signature Model. Although I use them on the drum kit, not for their intended Indoor Marching Percussion purposes, these sticks just feel perfect for me in expressing what I want to say musically as a drummer.
