The small town of Granada, Nicaragua is an unlikely beginning for a virtuoso guitarist the caliber of this artist . But then nothing about this uncommon artist is exactly as it seems. The sound emanating from the family piano often filled the family's home. His father would often treat the family to his musical prowess during informal family gatherings. It was here for the first time that he delighted to the melodies that would come to be the heart of his signature style throughout his adult years.

Soon after High School graduation, for the first time ever, he heard something new in college, -- the sounds of the Gypsy Kings. His life would never be the same. He muses, "Right then and there I knew what I wanted to do with the guitar and with my music.

Immediately, he began studying with Jorge Strunz of the ever so popular guitar duo Strunz and Farah. He studied the "Latin rhumba" and "Gypsy rhumba" as well as those rhythms from Latin America and the Middle East. He was perfecting the rhythm style of his new idols the Gypsy Kings. He studied Flamenco rhythms with good friend Paco Arroyo and Gino D'Auri. This artist is now expanding his musical studies as a student at the world acclaimed Berklee School Of Music.

With the release of his debut album, he is poised to make his mark.
