I always try to share my knowledge and passion for drumming to the students bringing them the best of my 40 years of experience.
During my career I have been envolved in different musical situations, playing, recording and touring with recognized singers and bands in Colombia and USA.
I wrote two books focusing on Colombian rhythms, the first one called "Como tocar ritmos internacionales y autónomos en la batería", was published on 1998 by Planeta Colombiana Editorial, and the second one named Colombian rhythms on the Drum Set was published on 2019 by eLibros editorial.
Also, I have conducted workshops at different institutions, universities and music schools in Colombia and USA
