About Me

I am NOT in Panama right now!

However, I might be able to help you in the distance with some tips about travelling in Panama, and also, maybe I can put you in contact with friends that might be able to host you.

I am a singersongwriter and literary author from Latin America (Panama). I have released three albums and thanks to my career I have played concerts in many countries, such as Mexico, Spain, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. You can find a lot of information about my career in Google, Spotify (where you can listen to my music) and Youtube (where you can watch some of my videos). I have published three books, one collection of poetry, one collection of short stories and one novel. As you may have guessed already, I love to listen to music and read books. I also have a passion for travelling and meeting people from differente places and cultures.

No estoy en Panamá en este momento, pero escríbeme de todos modos. Tal vez pueda ayudarte en la distancia con algunos consejos sobre cómo viajar en Panamá, y también, tal vez pueda ponerte en contacto con amigos que podrían alojarte.

Soy músico y escritor latinoamericano (Panamá). He lanzado tres álbumes y gracias a mi carrera he tocado conciertos en muchos países, como México, España, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Costa Rica, Rep.

He publicado tres libros, una colección de poesía, una colección de cuento y una novela. Como ya habrás podido imaginar, amo escuchar música y leer. Igualmente, me apasiona viajar y conocer a personas de diferentes sitios y culturas.
