Multi-Percussionist Renaissance Man, specializing in Brazilian, Cuban, Latin and Caribbean rhythms. I am also a singer, DJ, music and event producer. My career in Music and Culture started with a love for Capoeria and soon moved to learning percussion and congas. I have travelled and studied in both Cuba and Brazil, learning from Masters in these countries as well as several key players who reside in the Bay Area.
