Susan is enthused with rhythm, whether it is groovin' in the pocket or experimenting with layered polyrhythms. She has become totally obsessed with rhythm and it's cyclical patterns and the challenge of coordination while exploring the drum set. She is influenced by so many different styles of music, particularly enjoying Afro-Peruvian and Brazilian dance music as well as anything funky.

Susan currently plays in a few bands and also freelances about. She has played on several recordings of all genres and loves to do session work because it always keeps her on her toes. Susan finds playing music to be a beautiful thing to do and is always looking forward to spending quality time with her drum set. A native of Denver Colorado, she is now in Portland, Oregon. She studied jazz drum set at the University of Oregon and has been playing drums for 16 years. 

Susan was a top 10 finalist in the 2014 "Hit Like a Girl" International drumming contest.
She has toured nationally with multiple bands including March Fourth and internationally with multiple bands, including EMA opening 15 shows for Depeche Mode.
