I’m a singer and actor living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I specialize in classic popular songs from Latin America, especially Colombia, my partner’s homeland and a place rich in complex rhythms and diverse musical styles.
In April 2012, I released my first CD, “Arboles y Amores”, accompanied by Rafael Manriquez, Zack Pitt-Smith, and Henry Hung. Then in December 2014, I released my second CD, “Diamantes en la Grama”, with Rafael Manriquez, Zack Pitt-Smith, and Jeremy Allen. Please see my Discography to check them out. If you want translations, try the Lyrics section. You can buy them at CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes, and other vendors.
I’m so grateful for the airplay these albums have received on “Folk Music and Beyond” (KALW, San Francisco), “Spin The Globe” (KAOS, Olympia), “Mundofonias” (Radio Exterior de España, Madrid) and “Lo Mas W” (W Radio, Bogota), along with a phone interview by actress and radio personality Bianca Arango.
In the past couple of years, I’ve been spending time in Colombia to study tiple with Oriol Caro and repertoire with Miguel Angel Urrea Mejia. In the next couple of years, I hope to start living there part-time so that I can begin collaborating with musicians there more intensively.
Thanks for visiting!
