About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To share my music and all of my living experiences with people.

ABOUT ME

I was born in Colombia South America, moved to the USA with my family when I was 12 years old and lived in Palm Bay Florida. Later I moved by myself to Boston Massachusetts. My life is a blend of different cultures and experiences, lots of cool mutations of various things going on at once, it's been quite a journey and I wouldn't have it any other way!

I am a very sensitive person to all kinds of different cultures, I love sharing with other cultures and people. My own life experience of moving from one country to another, one culture to another, has taught me to appreciate every single culture I have encountered, with their qualities and differences which at the end of the day only unite us.

I am a very patient person. I enjoy the simplicity of life and the beauty of that simplicity; I really dig doing very simple things in life and getting out the best of it. Whatever I truly love doing in my life, I always try to really get into it and I strive to be dedicated to what I love to do, like my music for example. And, I like to be bold and take crazy risks in life!!

PHILOSOPHY

Life is not to be taken so seriously. Sometimes it's good to stop the rat race and just look around us to simply contemplate the present moment.

The true school of music is within ourselves.

El respeto al derecho ajeno es la paz.
Respect for the rights of others is peace.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Going back to Colombia after 12 years of not being there and entering a room in the house at my father's old farm and seeing everything I left there since then completely intact and untouched.
Literally like something out of a Garcia Márquez novel! Truly the most incredible moment in my life so far.

Also, hopping on an old 1986 RV truck with three other friends with whom I had a rock band and driving for a whole month all across and around the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest Northwest and back!! Playing shows pretty much everyday. It was a blast!!
