I play in two bands, Rocket 3 and Avalanche Lily, in Portland, Oregon. The purpose of this website is to make it easy for my friends and family to find out what I'm working on and listening to. I've got a tab for each of my bands, plus a blog with short descriptions and links to what I've been listening to lately.
My songwriting began with my first EP, Truth and Beauty, which I recorded as a solo artist in 2011. In 2012 my first band, Rocket 3, came into existence. Rocket 3 released a full length record, Burn, in 2014. In 2015 my second band, Avalanche Lily, was born, and we released our debut EP, Dream Horizon, in March 2017.
I'm a contributing writer to the Portland Notes music blog. I work as an engineer in high tech and have several patents in the areas of semiconductor physics and wearable technology. In 2008 I received the Society of Women Engineer’s Emerging Leader Award. I see a lot of similarities in my journey as an engineer and a musician.
I'm indebted to my brother for helping me start my first band, to Matt Jefferson, who has produced everything I've ever recorded, to my hubby, to my bandmates, and to everyone who supports me and my bandmates by coming out to gigs and listening to our music.
