Born and raised in San Francisco, UCLA Anthropology graduate, drummer (I just thought the picture of me with the guitar looked cool), I play in a psych-rock band called The Spiral Electric, and I have two amazing adopted sisters (8 and 10 years old) from Guatemala. Watching them grow up and being the best role model I can for them has been one of the great joys of my life.
I also went to an Arts High School in San Francisco where I studied Theatre...it was a trip.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a drummer in a psychedelic band, The Spiral Electric. We released an acclaimed EP earlier this year, have toured, and will be recording again early 2016.
I go to a lot of concerts. And I collect concert bootlegs.
Was working at Trader Joe's for a while, recently decided I need a change, and I'm looking for a new place to work.
I’m really good at
Drumming, playing pool, hanging out, keeping it mellow,
appreciating people for who they are, bringing my friends together,
collecting high quality bootlegs of concerts from a really good
source. Inquire within.
The first things people usually notice about me
Approachable, kind, decent looking, non-judgemental, to the point,
down with pretty much anything so long as I am comfortable.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about drumming a lot. And music in general. And the fact that I want to read more than I currently do. I think about how lucky I am to be from San Francisco and still live here. I like to keep my thoughts positive and always have forward momentum in everything I do in life. Eventually I'd like to travel more, so I think about that periodically.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably at a show, out and about with buddies, enjoying my life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'd like my band to take off so I can play music professionally.
You should message me if
You are happy, aren't a republican, don't have a ton of
ex-boyfriend baggage, have similar taste in music, and have
actually read my profile.
