I am originally from Cuba and grew up in Venezuela. I started playing drums and percussion at an early age (bongos, drums and xylophone). My specialties are concert percussion and Afro-Cuban music. I am a freelance percussionist in the New York City area and play regularly on/with Broadway shows, symphony orchestras, Afro-Latin music groups, and chamber music groups. I love exploring the connections between all different music styles that have made me the percussionist/drummer that I am today.
