From an early age, my passion for music was ignited by the influence of my older brother, an adept guitarist who introduced me to the world of music. My musical journey began with the classical guitar and the Cuatro, a traditional Venezuelan instrument, under his tutelage, and eventually evolved into mastering the electric guitar. In the 1990s, I joined the rock band Punto Rojo, marking my entry into the music scene of Caracas, Venezuela.
During my high school years, as I recorded at various studios in Caracas, I developed a deep fascination with the recording process and music production. My desire to attain a professional level of expertise in recording arts led me to embark on a journey of education and exploration at FULL SAIL in 1995. At that time, FULL SAIL was primarily focused on production, recording techniques, mixing, and live show production. It was here that I honed my skills in technical aspects, electronics, and audio technology.
Since 1996, I have dedicated myself to refining my production skills and cultivating my unique musical style. I’ve had the privilege of working in top-notch studios in New York City, collaborating with masters of the craft.
In 2007, I made the significant move to Los Angeles, California, where I have since established my residence and pursued a thriving career as an audio engineer.
On the music mixing and production front, I have achieved notable recognition, including four Latin GRAMMY nominations, one NARAS GRAMMY nomination, and one Latin GRAMMY award. Under the banner of Visionear Studios since 2000, I have undertaken a range of responsibilities, including mixing, recording, dialogue restoration, mastering, and composing original music for various multimedia projects. My portfolio boasts numerous award-winning productions, encompassing short films, movies, and documentaries.
In the realm of live sound mixing, I have collaborated with esteemed artists such as Draco Rosa, the band Kinky, Omar Torrez, and los Amigos Invisibles.
Additionally, I have ventured into electronic music production and mixing for Sol Selectas record label, releasing records with renowned European electronic music labels, including SOG Records in Sweden, Fabric in London, Release Records in Canada, Bazooka in Munich, Germany, and OV-Silence in Hamburg, Germany.
My passion for music and dedication to excellence remain unwavering, and I am always eager to embark on new creative endeavors. If you have a project in mind, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am committed to bringing your vision to life and contributing fresh ideas. Whether it involves recording exceptional talent or delivering top-tier mixing services, I am at your disposal to make it a reality to the best of my abilities.
