What do you find the most challenging aspect of recording a new album

I find the editing of the recorded track sessions to be the most tedious process of it all; it takes time, patience, long hours, experience and a good ear to alter the timing, pace or pitch of each individual track. Many times, at the end of this process I end up needing a good neck and shoulders massage to reduce tension.

How would you describe what inspire you to do what you do?

I believe that what inspires me is a dream that I have since an early age. I wanted to learn how to play music, attend a formal music school, but that never happened as I was growing up. Life and parents brought me through a totally different path and professional career not related to music, but that initial exposition to a musical instrument when I was 8 years old and the flame it lit up deep inside of me never died. The inner force of this dream remained latent in my life as part of my goals, until it naturally unveiled right in front of my eyes. I’ve never gave up on my dream; this dream became an idea, I shaped the idea and it became a form of self-expression.

Who would you say has been the biggest single biggest influence in your life in getting you to where you are now in your career?

I must say that my biggest influence has been renowned Saxophonist, multi Grammy Award winner and music Professor Dr. Ed Calle; I proudly say that under his direction while been a member of Miami Dade College Commercial Music Ensemble for several years, I built confidence in me, self-assurance during on stage performance and musical projection. I also learned to concentrate on repertoire, style harmonization, recording and management of commercial engagements; which has paid off significant so far in my youngest music career.

Going back in your life as far as you can remember, what songs or performance are the first you recall hearing and being affected by?

The version of "A Night in Tunisia" the musical composition written by Dizzy Gillespie and Frank Paparelli in 1942, performed by Papo Lucca and La Sonora Poncena and “Watermelon Man” by Mongo Santamaria a 1962 arrangement of Herbie Hancock’s 1961 original composition of the same name.

What is your favorite charity or cause you work for and why?

My favorite charity is “Make a Wish Foundation” an organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.

What aspect of the creative process to market, do you personally find to be the most rewarding?

I feel that the most rewarding part is when my music is played on the radio stations and listened by the public, along with the reviews I got from different people. I believe that music is perceived differently by every single listener, fellow musician, promoters and friends; as they all perceive something different, they can provide valuable reviews, comments and feedback that makes me improve, produce and execute much better every single time.
