I was born in Miami, Arizona and was introduced to music by my family who had emigrated from Almeria, Spain. One of my cousins danced flamenco with Charro and the Jose Greco family and my uncles played  swing, mambo and rumba in their band.

I began my musical journey at a young age playing bongos with them and  continued to slowly hone my skills as a musician eventually writing and recording songs.

In my latest album entitled @conga, i blend together different kinds of rhythms; salsa, flamenco, funk,  middle eastern, rock, brazilian, jazz and classical.

I enjoy traveling the world exploring new musical horizons and cherish the musicians  i play with. I collaborate with many wonderful artists like Greg Adams, Tom Scott, Arturo Sandoval, Brandon Fields, Ron King, Michael Paulo, Chuchito Valdez,

Ry Cooder, Jim Keltner, David Foster, Phil Perry, Wally Minko, Smokey Robinson, Tom Breckline, Bernie Dresel, Joey Heredia, Lenny Castro, Herman Mathews,

Justo Amarillo and my fellow musicians in Canto Vagabondo.
