Cleveland / Ohio / United States
band: Session Drummer
STICK SIZE: 5ar
I started taking drum lessons when I was 10 years old. I definitely struggled for a while, floating from one instructor to another. It was a struggle trying to sit down and learn the material that was presented to me. After three years of lessons and two different instructors, I started to realize that if I wanted to play drums, then it was time to sit behind the kit with my CD player and just go. My third (and final) instructor helped me take this new found talent and use it in a productive and meaningful way, which carved the path to where I am now. I have played with a few local bands of different genres throughout the years. I am currently working on a project with not only an amazing friend, but one of the most talented people I have ever met. Our taste and musical influences could not be more different from one another, and it has aided us in the process of writing some absolutely killer tracks.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I play the 5AR series. My favorite thing about the Collision brand is their commitment to not only putting out an incredible product, but their commitment to the Collision community. For that reason alone, I would recommend their sticks to anyone. But also, the quality of the sticks. Never in my 25 years of playing have I used a pair of sticks as durable and balanced.
