Zack is a drummer hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Having over a decade of playing under his belt, touring the world with his band PUP several times over, and opening for acts like The Hives, The Menzingers, AFI, Billy Talent & Fucked Up, his trajectory shows no sign of easing up. As an individual as interested in minutia as he is the greater picture - and is poised to never slow down. Zack is most certainly obsessed with every musical process. If hes not being blindsided by PUPs already demanding schedule, Zack enjoys playing, recording and writing music at home, as well as plenty of touring with a variety of musical projects. See you on the road!

This leads me on many creative wild goose chases. But it always forces me to cultivate ideas and then be a decisive editor of those ideas.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?Simply put, Vic Firth, their staff, and their products are a reflection of everything I value in the creation of music: tireless work ethic, attention to detail and, most of all, community. My favourite implement they offer is the 5A. The distillation of those values, and my most important tool for expressing myself.
