Like a lot of drummers, I was a pot and pan enthusiast until I got my first toy drum set at age 10. Since then, I have transitioned from a rock drummer to a jazz drummer to a drum corps snare drummer, and back to a jazz drummer. Whether playing or teaching, Vic Firth has been there from the beginning.

  • Most memorable Next-Level Performance

    I can't boil it down to one performance, but my steady gig at Murry's jazz club for over ten years has been crucial in giving me the skills and confidence to play at a high level.
  • What Drives Your Creativity?

    I get ideas and motivation from the historic masters of the instrument, from modern players, and from my felt experience of life. Inspiration can come from beyond music, and I remain as open and observant as possible to hear those inspirations.
  • Why do you choose Vic Firth?

    Vic Firth was a man with a huge heart and commitment to players, education, and excellence. His tradition lives on in Vic Firth products and the people who work there. It is a tradition I'm proud to be a part of.
