Contributing to Orlando’s Creative Community: #MelroseintheMix


As some of you know, I spend some of my time contributing to the community via education, workshops and events. I do some of my instruction at Orlando’s Melrose Center.

There, I have been able to contribute not only by sharing my audio knowledge with learners, but also am in charge and run two successful events, these being #TheVoiceofMelrose Open Mic, and the #MelroseintheMix Live Recording Sessions.

I wanted to take the opportunity of sharing a little bit of the latter, an idea I put together and has been really successful and encouraging for everyone in the community.

In these live recording sessions we have the artist perform a 4-6 song set of their music live in the studio, while the local audience enjoys this intimate show. We capture the live performance and then give the artist the raw tracks of the recording for them to utilize. Additionally, patrons of the library who have been following the audio program and have the appropriate credentials can sign up to be assistant engineers for the session. To learn more sign-up as audience for this sessions, CLICK HERE.

I leave you with the 1st live recording session we did for the performance of the Swamp Sistas Songwriting Circle, where my dear friend Ka Malinalli performs, along with other artists of the caliber of E-Turn and Beth Mckee, leader of the Circle.

Discover the labor of love of The Wild Horse Rescue Center

Hello everyone!

As some of you may have seen on my recent social media posts, we have been working on some music videos for Vuelo al Sur.

As we were working on finding a location that would embody the spirit of the song, we were so lucky to run into The Wild Horse Rescue Center.

I leave you with this video we made for the center, so you can get a glimpse into their wonderful labor of love. A big shout out to Daniela Granadillo for her great work on this video!


Music for Coffee Project Documentary: La Palma y el Tucán


Hoy quiero compartirles este maravilloso documental que muestra un gran proyecto cafetero en Colombia, llamado La Palma y el Tucán. Este video, producido por Jimmy Sherfey, investiga profundamente la problemática y día a día de los agricultores cafeteros, quienes compiten en un mercado que se enfoca en los resultados monetarios y no en la calidad de producto que viene de la pasión y el amor de los artesanos del café.

Espero que disfruten este video y que puedan aprender unpoco más de la industria cafetera y de como pueden apoyar a los heroes responsables de ese grandioso café de sus mañanas: los agricultores cafeteros.

La música en este documental fue mi aporte, y fue hecho con todo mi cariño.

Gracias por escuchar



I want to share a wonderful documentary about a great Colombian coffee project called La Palma y el Tucán. This video, produced by Jimmy Sherfey, digs into the heart of the issues and day-to-day challenges that coffee growers face, as they search for a way to survive in a market that focuses on numbers and no longer on the quality that comes from the passion and love for the craft of coffee making.

I hope you can enjoy this video, and learn more about the coffee industry, and how you can support the true heroes of your morning coffee goodness: the coffee farmers.

The music on this video was made by yours truly with much love.

Thank you for listening
