As a multi-instrumentalist who has worked within many different genres, I can insure that whatever I'm contributing to your project will be musical, tasteful, and sourced from a variety of creative perspectives. I have extensive experience in notated, improvised, composed, and experimental music!
I grew up in San Antonio, Texas, as the son of a multi-instrumentalist, producer, and visual artist. I began studying voice, guitar, and drums at the age of 7. In high school I performed and recorded with many projects as a bassist, keyboardist, vocalist, drummer, and guitarist; recording an album with Grammy-award winning producer Michael Morales.
In 2016, I moved to Nashville to study classical percussion and jazz under artists like Grammy-award winning saxophonist Jeff Coffin, of the Dave Matthew's Band, Ji Hye Jung world renowned classical percussionist, composer/arranger Ryan Middagh, and Nashville session drummers like Derek Phillips (Charlie Hunter, Gloria Gaynor), Jim White, and Marc Widenhofer. During my time in Nashville, I have performed with Victor and Roy Wooten, Melanie Faye, Danny Gottlieb (Pat Metheny Group) and opened for acts such as 21 Savage, Cautious Clay, and Arlie.

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

A: In the past four years, while I was studying jazz at Vanderbilt University, I primarily worked with rapper and producer, Lackhoney, as a writer collaborator and member of his R&B/jazz influenced live band. I come from a strong garage rock, and indie/alt background and continue to work in those realms as well as others.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
