What Drives Your Creativity?The thing that drives my creativity the most is the desire to always be the best drummer I can be. Uncovering a weakness in my playing, timing, or technique is another opportunity to challenge myself and better my understanding of what it is to be a musician. Theres too many drummers to name that I look up to for inspiration and guidance. I try and find something to learn from every song I hear as well as every performance I watch.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?The first pair of sticks I ever played were Vic Firth. Over the years I would try other brands, but none ever compared. Vic Firth sticks are consistent, dependable, and just feel like they belong in my hands. With so many options out there, it feels great knowing I have the best drumsticks with me at every performance, studio session, and drum lesson.
