Music scholars believe she was found on a rock, by a pirate (or possibly a viking) in the middle of the Northern Pacific Ocean, who's heart softened when he heard her singing a lovesong to a baby sea turtle. He took her under his care and taught her the secrets of balance between fierce and serene and the benefits of that harmony that can only be understood by someone who chooses a life at sea. After his vigorous training and her eventual mastery of this philosophy, he dubbed her "Namaslay" and set her free.

She was brought to land and wandered the earth learning musical trades and philosophies from different cultures for years without a sense of belonging ...until she stumbled into a club called Fever in Baltimore, MD in the early to mid 1990's. She was properly introduced to electronic music by the likes of The Hardkiss Brothers, Scott Henry, Donnie Berlin, Ivan G, Roni Size, LTJ Bookem, DieselBoy, Infinity, Rabbit in the Moon and sooo many more incredible DJs and electronic producers. Instantly, her life re-birthed meaning and purpose... to spread her ancient musical vision which would take centuries of visualizing while technology caught up to make the vision possible. After spending so much time on a rock in the middle of the ocean, she wanted to experience the other extreme, and has created a home at the base of the majestic Rocky Mountains, in Boulder CO.

Her ever-evolving music is described as a sexy, soulful, glitched-out blend of House, Breaks, Dubstep and a whatever else must be part of her vision in that sacred moment of creation. Her original music has been used in adventure films including "The Sharp End" by Sender Films, "Dosage V" and "Seasons Greetings" by Big Up Productions, "Rocky Mountain Highball" by Yama Studio, as well as many adventure shorts and ads by various companies including Glenfiddich Scotch, Arc'Teryx and The North Face.

Even though she continues to slay adventures, write music, sing, DJ old-school vinyl sets and paint in the foothills of the Rockies, her eyes will always reflect the sea...
