Coming from a Puerto Rican family, music is as much part of our blood as coffee is. I began playing the piano and singing at 5 and picked up the guitar at 13 fascinated by the fact that it opened up a world of composing my own songs. I got into discovering artists early on and was privileged enough to intern with Interscope Record’s A&R department. My obsession with music is now complete.

Nothing truly captures my attention but music. Nothing really fascinates me but music so if a guy can’t make me feel the way music feels, I ain’t never getting married #sorrynotsorry.

I spend way too much time researching unknown artists and following their development as musicians and artists which is exactly why I want to write for F21. I want to share my love for discovering truly gifted people helping them get the recognition they deserve.
