I was born in Puerto Rico, and move to the Bronx, NYC when I was five years old. I am the true definition of Nuyorican. I'm a father, a husband, and a loyal friend. I write and perform rock, alternative, dance and hip hop songs in both English and Spanish. I'm also a tv food critic, columnist, and subject matter commentator.
I have been featured on the web, network television (HLN TV, NY1, Al Jazeera), travel magazines, newscasts, and even Men's fitness magazine. Keep your eyes open, you never know where I'll show up next! The hustle is real my friends!
Guru Kiran and I on the national newspaper, The India Times!
Official Wikipedia entry for Upendra film Uppi 2. This is a famous kannada film series where my song will be featured. My son always asks "Are they on wikipedia?" That's how he gauges if you are cool. LOL. So I guess I'm finally cool?
The Songs Recording for Uppi2 started on 30 March 2014 at Gurukiran Studio in Bangalore. US rap artist Arod (also known as ARodomus) will render a rap song for the film. The song, sung in a mix of Spanish, English, and a line of Kannada, was recorded in Brooklyn, New York.
Guru Kiran is going all over India, speaking to newspapers, online, TV stations, and radio promoting our upcoming song! Yeah boyee! Acha!
I am currently collaborating with a very well known Kannada industry (Bangalore, India) music director/actor, Guru Kiran, on a new project. The work will appear in the new feature film Uppi2 starring the famous actor Upendra.
