Where are you located now and where are you originally from?
I am located in Encinitas, California. I was actually born and raised here my entire life!
Who has been your greatest influence? My greatest influence is Joey Jordison the drummer from slipknot. Unfortunately he just passed away 2 months ago
What is your latest and greatest?
(Not sure what this means)
Are you performing LIVE soon? Yes! I am performing a show with my band called the Pumps! We are an all girl rock band! @thepumpsofficial
What are you most looking forward to in 2022? I am looking forward to touring outside of the country with my band and making a living from it!
How did you deal with all the changes in the past two years that the music industry has gone through? I actually benefitted from it. I got a job as a drum teacher. Now I have around 20 students. My band formed a few months ago and I met some amazing people in the music industry. I also just graduated college from Berklee school of musics online program. I have a BA in music production. My Instagram following has grown so much since the pandemic! I spent a lot of times focusing on filming drum covers for my Instagram, YouTube, and tik tok.
What would you say to your younger self if you could? Do not compare yourself to others. Find your passion and stick with it. Live in the moment and reach out to people when you need help
On a scale from ONE to TEN, how driven are you? It depends. On a good day it is 10/10. On a bad day it can be down to 5/10. I am lucky I am able to cope on those bad days because I know it will get better.
When you're not feeling motivated how do you get back on track? I cope by reaching out for help. I find it helpful to watch videos of my idols. I have to go out of my comfort zone in order to achieve.
How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success? A decent amount. In the music industry a lot of it is being at the right place at the right time. Also, it is about how much work you put into your instrument. I have done a lot of studying about how to achieve well in this field. Motivation plays a huge role!
