ABOUT

I'm a 27 years old composer and multi-instrumentalist. I've been living in LA for almost two years now. I just finished the Film Scoring program at UCLA a couple months ago.

I studied a jazz performance major back in Venezuela, my home country. Back there, I used to compose, arrange and play for several bands and songwriters, and teach at one of Venezuela's Youth Orchestras. Also worked as a copyist, transcribing and engraving music.

I'm skillful at composing, arranging and orchestrating. Even though the bass is my main instrument, I'm really good at playing the Venezuelan cuatro, a traditional instrument I consider my main one as well, and I also play some guitar, ukulele, bongos, piano, trombone and sing. I used to sing in a choir as a baritone some years ago, while I was in college (I’m a tenor, though).
