Bio

I feel very blessed in my life. I consider myself part of the American dream, if not a few.
I was born in Montevideo, Uruguay. My father was a professional soccer player, which means i was introduced to bright lights, media, and showmanship early in my life. After retirement, my father took a job offer from my uncle and decided to move the family to Houston, Texas.

Soon after we moved to Katy, Texas (small town just outside Houston). I was nine years old at the time. I had aspirations to become a doctor. After graduating from Katy High School, I decided to stay in Houston to help the family business while attending college at the University of Houston. Having athletics in my blood, I couldn't stay away from sport. I walked on as a place-kicker on the football team and soon got the starting job and a scholarship. By the end of my college career I was lucky enough to have accumulated numerous scoring and kicking records at the University of Houston, not to mention All-Conference honors and being Honorable Mention All-American. While all this was going on I still wanted to become a doctor. So after a lot of hard studying during those years, the University of Texas Medical Branch granted me a spot.

Fork in the road. I strongly felt that with a year or two of training I could have made it in the NFL, but I thought. "I can get injured anytime or have a bad year. If I get an education, no one can take that away from me." So I decided to go to medical school. I graduated from UTMB in 2004 and was granted a very competitive residency spot in the field of Anesthesiology at Tulane.

So what about the music? It was always there in the background. I was in the choir in junior high, and was voted to the All-Region Choir Team. Of course I quit b/c being in the choir in high school wasn't exactly the coolest. I wrote my first song the first week I got my first guitar at age 16. My father plays the piano and music was my alarm every Sat. morning. I got my ear for music from him I'm sure. The family didn't have enough money to pay for lessons, so I did what I had to do. The guitar came with a sheet showing basic chords, so I taught myself! I've had music in my life for a long time, but now I'm ready to share it with the world. Growing up in a small Texas town, country music enveloped my upbringing. Influenced by country artists, rock artists and lots of spanish music, I am a proud product of the world.

After moving to New Orleans, I started playing with the idea of performing my music and possibly giving a career in music a try. Relocating back to Houston after Katrina gave me the opportunity to showcase my music in various Houston venues. Moving back to NOLA, I started performing at local bars and coffee shops. Strangely accumulated some fans, and my thirst for music grew. On May 10th, 2007, my mother passed away from an automobile/pedestrian accident. I returned home to south america for the funeral where the ballad "Love Remains" was born. I not only desired, but needed more than ever to let music be my medium of expression. While there, along with up and coming artist and known producer Rodrigo Vicente; I recorded the demo to "Love Remains," along with four other songs I had recently written. So enjoy!
