What Drives Your Creativity?

I want to leave this world with something better than what I found it with. Because of this, I'm on a constant journey to discover and try new things. I have an urge to create that never goes away.


Why do you choose Vic Firth?

They are just done right. My love for Vic Firth goes deep since I picked up my first pair of Ralph Hardimon’s in 1994. Any VF stick feels like an extension of yourself and allows you to create without feeling like there are any barriers. Over the years I’ve tried many different sticks and mallets and I always come back to one, conclusive answer — Vic Firth.
