A bit of my story:

I have always lived under the delicious spell of music.  This irresistible love for music and deep passion to share it have fueled my disciplined pursuit of excellence.  In recent years, it has led me to establish a strong personal brand, progressive social media presence, and accessible stage presence. As a competition-crazed high school student, I won prizes in the American Protege International Piano Competition, New World Symphony Side-by-Side Concerto Competition, Alhambra Orchestra Concerto Competition, and the Imperial Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition.  As a result, I was given the opportunity to perform at Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall and as a soloist with the New World Symphony, Alhambra Orchestra, and the Imperial Symphony Orchestra.  

In 2014, I received a full scholarship to pursue a bachelor's degree in keyboard performance at the University of Miami's Frost School of Music and study with renown pianist and teacher, Santiago Rodriguez.  As my artistic expression evolved to include more progressive ideals and a greater personal conviction to exercise initiative, my career grew in ways I had not imagined.  I was given the opportunity to appear as a solo artist and lecturer throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Spain, Italy, Austria, and Luxembourg.  This past year, my performance schedule included a performance of Manuel de Falla's Noches en los Jardines de España with the Sequoia Symphony Orchestra, a lecture for composition and piano students at the Conservatorio National de Puerto Rico, and solo recitals in San Francisco, Miami, and Puerto Rico.

I am currently pursuing a master's degree in music business and entertainment industries at the University of Miami's Frost School of Music.  Finally, I would be remiss to forget an acknowledgment of the teachers (both former and current) to whom I owe endless inspiration, guidance, and knowledge: Santiago Rodriguez, Bruce Brubaker, Naoko Takao, and Ciro Fodere.
