Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceThe first time I played Red Rocks, I played 2 nights back to back, both sold out. On the second night, I walked on stage casually and thought "Wait, I'm used to this? Epic."
What Drives Your Creativity?I surround myself with people that I respect and admire. Keeping them around me has made me feel constantly inspired and innovative, and I'm the most grateful for that.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?When I was a kid, I dreamt of being a Vic Firth artist. All my favorite drummers had signature sticks with Vic. Then once I became a serious drummer, I realized the significant difference in the quality of Vic Firth sticks vs. the other companies. Combine those two together, and you got a happy me playing Vic.
