I was born and raised in San Diego, California. I first learned to play the guitar from my father when I was 12 years old and I’ve been hooked on that beautiful should ever since. Growing up in a musical family, I grew up listening to all kids of music, from Bach to the Beatles, to Miles Davis and Michael Jackson. At age 16 I began taking lessons from internationally acclaimed Flamenco guitarist Diego Corriente. Three years later I began performing in San Diego area at local live music venues and private parties.
