I'm a 25 years + experienced bassist. I've performed all over the world in performing arts centers, concert halls, theaters, jazz clubs, jazz festivals, rock festivals, world music festivals, folk festivals with various artists of various music styles. Most recently toured the world with The Pedrito Martinez Group with whom I recorded two studio albums and one live album. I've worked with the likes of Steve Gadd, John Scofield, Wynton Marsalis, Issac Delgado, Ruben Blades amongst a few. I'm a Grammy nominated artist and a Berklee College of Music Graduate and scholarship recipient. I've taught private lessons, ensembles and workshops all over the globe for the best part of the last 15 years. I'm very easygoing and patient. Completely fluent in spoken and written english and spanish. I hope to enjoy the pleasure of sharing my knowledge with you!!!
