  • Most memorable Next-Level Performance

    Working with Robbie Williams at EastWest studios in Hollywood was a super memorable session, getting to record in such an iconic room with an artist of Robbie's caliber. A memorable moment for sure!
  • What Drives Your Creativity?

    My favourite drummers definitely give me heaps of inspiration without having to look too far. Checking out anything from Ash Soan, Keith Carlock, Victor Indrizzo or Mark Guiliana always gets my juices flowing! Aside from that, choosing gear that inspires me is a big part of what drives me to be a better player.
  • Why do you choose Vic Firth?

    Vic Firth are the most consistent and high quality products on the market without question and the diversity of models is unmatched. The Vic Firth MJC4 is a game changing stick for me, it gives me the feel of a large stick, with the playability, finesse and clear cymbals sounds of a much more lightweight model. The best of both worlds!
