I bought my first kit by pooling birthday money with my brother and knew from my first time behind the drums that I was hooked. As a founding member of Young the Giant, I've had the amazing opportunity to work with a wide range of inspiring producers and musicians around the world. I'm always looking to improve my craft and I rely heavily on Vic Firth products!

Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceThe most memorable performance I can think of was our first time selling out Red Rocks Amphitheater. There's something about playing a show to 10,000 people and still having it feel intimate that is unlike any venue I've ever played.
What Drives Your Creativity?I love keeping my ears open for different sounds and rhythms I encounter in my everyday life. I always have my phone ready to record interesting patterns. There's so much inspiration in the world if you pay attention.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?I've wanted to be a Vic Firth artist since I picked up my first pair of sticks. All of my favorite players have been involved with Vic Firth so I figured they were doing something right!
