Throughout my journey of playing the drums, the thing that I remain so grateful for is the ability to connect with people through the music. There is nothing like that shared sense of community. Growing up and learning music in the academic environment, I was quickly drawn to the Vic Firth community, as well as the quality of all Vic products. Im grateful to be included in the family! I live in Nashville, TN and play with various artists throughout the year “ most recently, Copeland, Fleurie, The Belonging Co, Hope Darst, Speak Low.
Speak Low If You Speak Love
Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceI feel a breakthrough in playing whenever I'm able to see the audience feeling the same thing that I am feeling. My playing philosophy is very much about creating moments and above all, listening to what else is going on, so I can help create moments that move people!
What Drives Your Creativity?The joy that I get from creating music with others, the versatility and freedom of self-expression that comes with playing drums, and a belief that creativity is a gift that comes from a Creator, and that is one of the ways that I connect with God.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?I absolutely love the Vic Firth Extreme 5B, because of the way they balance power and dynamic playing with a huge degree of touch and response. Overall, Vic Firth stands for quality, creativity, and excellent-sounding sound and feel.
