I'm proud to serve as an engineer on Deepak Chopra's new age album, "Home - Where Everyone is Welcome"
I helped record Gregorio Uribe's vocals on the track "Border," which is inspired by Reyna Grande who is an acclaimed novelist from Mexico.

I'm from Medellin, Colombia. My dad dreamed of going to Italy to study to become a great painter, since that was his passion. His sister, my aunt Inés, had already immigrated to the United States. Since his sister lived in New York, he took the opportunity to come see a Picasso exposition. My dad's plans for Italy were changed when he found an opportunity to stay in the United States, where he remained. As he explained it, he “found God” at a church in Woodside, New York. He met Elizabeth at this church and re-married. After years of marriage, his immigration status was legalized through his spousal petition.
One of the members of the church found him a job at Kinray, where he worked distributing products to mom-and-pop pharmacies in various boroughs of New York. Throughout his life, he held different jobs, from auditor of the Ferrocarril de Antioquia railway system, to bartender at his family’s nightclub.
My mother, Hilda, who stayed in Colombia with my three siblings and their father, was the one who encouraged my musical interests from my earliest years by registering me in musical programs and playing much of the traditional music of South America. With my mother’s encouragement, I accepted my father’s invitation to the United States so that I could pursue a career in audio engineering. My passion for music and for helping people deliver their emotions through art led me to become a sound engineer.
