After a long time isolated from music I found the time to return to the musical environment which is my passion without knowing how and where to start without knowing anyone in the local scene little by little I began to connect with some talented musicians and thus to turn on a new adventure in the local scene that I baptized it as Chicago Rock Ensemble

I was an energetic toddler, always running around, and banging on everything. My parents noticed that, and decided it be a good idea to get me a Jr drum set. My very first drums was a Jim Hensons baby muppets drum set. My childhood is where I really got into music and drums, the fact that my uncles played in a grupero band and attending their rehearsals and a few shows with my dad really stuck to me and wanted to be in a band from there on. I started a band my freshman year in high-school and my knowledge and skills in drums expanded. I joined my very first band in 2008 with Pure Remedy, which is an alternative rock band based out of South side Chicago. We’ve recorded 2 full length albums and done plenty of shows. Most memorable shows were 2019 Ruido fest, Congress theater, Fiesta del sol just to name a few. Current bands/projects I’m playing with: Pure Remedy, Tizoc, Southside Bandits, and Chicago Rock Ensemble.
