  • Most memorable Next-Level Performance

    My first time playing a Broadway Show. To be a young woman that moved from the other side of the world to pursue her dreams and actually achieve them, was a very special moment.
  • What Drives Your Creativity?

    I'm always inspired by other drummers like Nate Smith, Steve Jordan, Anderson Paak, Steve Gadd, David Garibaldi and Aaron Spears.
  • Why do you choose Vic Firth?

    I've played Vic Firth Sticks since I was 12 years old, they are the most consistent and versatile stick brand on the market. They feel great in my hands and I know I can always trust them to give me the sound I want.
