I started playing drums at the age of 4 and turned professional at the age of 17 playing for the Motown legend Edwin Starr. Since then I have gone on to play for a diverse collection of international acts and artists including Alexander O'Neal, Womack & Womack, Wang Chung, Sixto Rodriguez and more recently electronic acts Above & Beyond and Leftfield. In this time I have both Gold and Platinum awards for contributions to works and have recently published my book The Art of eDrumming, the first which combines the two worlds of drumming and technology.

Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceDefinitely when I successfully auditioned for Edwin Starr at age 17 and got the gig. Life changing moment right there. Been banging things ever since...and still love it as much today as I did back then, and still play with that band too!
What Drives Your Creativity?I am a true advocator of eDrums, not for mimicking acoustic ones but for all those things acoustic ones can't do. That is my drive and inspiration.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?They're the best sticks that feel great in the hand, well made and balanced beautifully. It's an honour to be a part of the family.
