Biography

I've always been playing drums. My dad was a drummer and my mom did sound for his band right up until I was born. Playing is in my blood! I played on pots and pans when I was a baby, marched in a competitive drumline in high school then moved to LA to attend Musician's Institute. I started touring with Otep in 2010. After a few years, I took some time off the road to make original music before joining Butcher Babies in 2016. It's been incredible touring the world with some of my closest friends sharing our art and collective love for music with the world!
