Is a Venezuelan musician that began playing guitar at age 9 and was doing his first performances at age 14. A long career has taken him on a journey of very diverse projects and collaborations.

His project, The Caminos Music Project, is the result of years developing a passion for learning: Flamenco (Bulerías, Soleá por Bulería, Alegrías, Fandangos de Huelva, among others), Latin Music (Salsa, Bolero, Son, Tangos, Cumbia, and more), Venezuelan Music (Joropo, Vals, Merengue) and Latin Jazz.
