I wanted to be a musician ever since I lived in London starting at the age of two. I was so inspired and encouraged by the musicians of the South African community there, including Eugene Skeef and members of the group District Six.
My interest in rhythm and composition has resulted in playing several instruments, and my interest in literature has been a driving force in my pursuit as a songwriter. As a child, I studied piano on and off for a few years and then became interested in guitar and percussion. I spent much of my childhood between Europe and Lima, Peru, where I was born, and I believe all that traveling deeply influenced my outlook on life and my music.
As a teenager in the USA, I toured with the band Al Andalus, an ensemble of musicians from many parts of the world which celebrated the music of Andalusian Spain.
After attending Berklee College of Music on a scholarship and graduating with honors I moved to Portland, Ore., to join the band Pink Martini.
Now, I am currently working on my fifth studio album.
