I grew up in New Jersey listening to my parent’s record collection of mostly old country music and classic rock. My favorite thing to listen to was a Led Zepplin box set that my uncle gave me for Christmas, Beastie Boys and a Pink Floyd tape that I stole from my brother. Throughout high school, I lived in Missouri. Traveling to go see live concerts became my life obsession. Some of my favorites were 311, Incubus, Deftones, Helmet, Jane’s Addiction and Tool. Somewhere along the way, I decided that being a drummer was probably the coolest thing on earth I could do, so it began. The journey of broadening my musical spectrum to include jazz and funk began when I ventured down to New Orleans to study drums. It was a wonderful experience, but I always knew I was meant for the west coast. Los Angeles is where I discovered my love for Punk rock. The first bands that I played live with were all basically LA punk bands. I’ve played in several all-girl groups including “The Eyeshadows”, “The Blue Bonnets” (featuring Kathy Valentine of the GoGo’s) and many more over the years. After growing in style and notoriety, I signed to a major label with a Funk, Trip hop/pop band called “Animastik”. In 2009, I started my own band KRASHKARMA in which I sing and play drums in. We have released 3 studio albums and have toured in 3 continents so far. This is the project that gets most of my attention although I still get hired for drum workshops and tours with other Los Angeles based artists.
