About Me

  • Born and raised in Mexico…
  • Lived in Israel…
  • Studying in Boston…

I’m the result of an eclectic mix of cultures, lifestyles, symbols and languages. My mind is a pool of memories, experiences, affections and interests that wander around and blend to turn my thoughts and emotions into music.

My ideas are broad and somewhat unpredictable. Hence, my fascination and need to explore and master every music genre: from cumbia to swing to film scores, catchy enough but with a folk flavor. And of course, spicing it with a touch of samples!

Whether I write for advertisement, education, entertainment or just for pleasure, my music has reached various communities in Mexico, USA, Israel, Argentina, Canada and Colombia, to name a few. My talent and proficiency have always been recognized by my peers and awarded by my institutions. Moreover, at least 6,620,000 people have heard my original music on YouTube.

Regardless of the style or application, I write music that makes people think, move, remember, smile, play and talk. I write music to be sometimes evident and sometimes unnoticed. I write music that lives inside other people’s minds.

My music has become my last name.
