After graduating from William Rainey Harper College, he continued his guitar studies at Northeastern Illinois University where he was also a member of the Guitar Ensemble for a year. He graduated with honors from NEIU where he obtained a double major degree and certification in Secondary Education and foreign languages as well as a minor degree in Latin American studies. He recently obtained English as a Second Language (ESL) teaching certification from National Louis University (NLU), which enabled him to become an ESL teacher for School District 211. His guitar repertoire’s basis is mainly that of Latin American descent, Rock, R & B among others. His favorite composers for guitar music are Agustin Barrios Mangoré, Antonio Lauro, Alirio Díaz, Manuel Ponce De Leon among many others. His varied repertoire in terms of styles and genres has given him the opportunity to appear in different venues such as, “The Hot House”, “First Presbyterian Church” (Ravenswood), “Congress Theater," “V-Live," “Aragon Ballroom," “Oakton Community College," “Martyrs," “Casa Michoacán," “Décima Musa," “Daily Plaza," “Dirty Nellies," “La casa del canto,” (México City), “Plaza de las ranas” (Puebla, México), “La Boom (NY)” and “Ninety Miles” (Havana, Cuba) among others. His T.V. and radio appearances include 1200 and 950 am, enredat (i-net radio), TV Azteca América, where he performed his original compositions. Other appearances include numerous recitals at WRHC, NEIU, De Paul University, and Elmhurst College.

He has had the privilege of working with Chicago guitar virtuosos like Steven Vázquez and Maestro Arley Otálvaro such as is the case of “Flores en Hielo” (Latin American Folklore) and the rock band “Año Cero”. He is currently a part of the José Pepe Cornier Band (Pre-Grammy nominee), in which he has an opportunity to perform around the Chicagoland area.
