I'm happy to be part of the production team of Deepak Chopra's album & book: “Home | Where Everyone is Welcome." I believe this project concept is of great relevance, reinforcing the idea of America as a place for dreams, welcoming diversity and being a fertile ground for the good.
I got to know Deepak Chopra and his work during the production of this project and it was an inspiring experience for me. His work is known all around the world and certainly inspired many other people during the years.

Being a scholar of music and culture, and having my doctoral dissertation about the importance of cross cultural influences in the development of art, I understand and respect very much efforts to break barriers and create positive connections.

I am extremely proud of my roots and my multi-cultural history. I’m a Brazilian, great-grandson of Italian immigrants, now building my adult history in the United States of America. I’m very thankful to Brazil for being a land of opportunities to my family, as well as to USA for its generosity to me all those past years.

This photo was from a special occasion, my graduation at University of Miami, where I had the honor to be on a full scholarship sponsored by Ginny Mancini (Henry Mancini's wife), be a teaching assistant and composer in residence. To my side is my mother, who came from Brazil for the occasion and always supported me in my endeavors!
