I have to give the glory to God for the opportunities I have had. Without his grace, I wouldn't be the musician I am today. I started playing the drums when I was 5 years old because of my father, who is an amazing musician and has been my biggest inspiration since I started. When I was really young, he noticed me banging paint cans to the music he was listening to... Soon after, bought me my first drum kit and I began learning.

I started in the school band, then I played at a couple of churches and just jammed with friends up until I was 13. Unfortunately, I didn't take it seriously during high school. But when I turned 18, I began playing more and more until it became a couple of hours each day. I learned how to record audio and video to capture what I was doing and now I'm a content creator.

  • Most memorable Next-Level Performance

    For a while, my focus was solely on rudiments and other things that people told me to do. Which laid a solid foundation for my drumming. When I got a little older, I would just throw headphones in and play to whatever I was listening to at the moment. It was much more fun and I felt way more comfortable. I did that every day for months and I felt progression as time went on. The better I got, the more inspired I felt to continue... that's when that burning passion I have today really started.
  • What Drives Your Creativity?

    All of the amazingly talented musicians online inspire me so much to be creative and think outside the box.
  • Why do you choose Vic Firth?

    Vic Firth Drumsticks have always been reliable, strong, and consistent. I feel more comfortable and confident behind the kit when my thumb is on that flag.
