Being the youngest of 3, guitar-wielding brothers, the family band needed a drummer.

I got into the kit at a young age, with influences from the family leading me to play old-school heavy metal like Black Sabbath, traditional rock such as AC/DC, and funk-rock including the Chilli Peppers.


I was the kid in primary school that walked around with the discman and a pouch fully-loaded with CDs. I began to develop my own taste with more modern heavy metal genres; first going through a big System of a Down phase, then riding the nu-metal wave thanks to Linkin Park, Korn, Slipknot, and eventually down the melodic death-metal rabbit hole led by In Flames.


By the time I was finishing high-school, the old iPod Nano was chock-full of everything from Paramore, My Chemical Romance, Avenged Sevenfold - all that good emo shit.

Today I am playing drums with my favorite group of humans and musicians, Excuse for an Exit; a female-fronted ‘alternative, pop-punky, heavy but sad, sad but fun’ sounding band, with an affinity for diversity and inclusivity.


Since releasing our EP ‘Hot Mess,’ we’ve been fortunate enough to sell-out venues from our hometown of Gippsland, to Melbourne

.
With two additional single releases and more in the barrel, we’re always keen to jump on stage and share our passion with any willing to join us.
Get around it!
