I was raised in Tijuana, in Mexico, where I enjoyed playing with my friends and also loved music and literature. Although I was barely able to reach the keyboard, I was drawn to a small Steinway spinet on which I eventually composed my first piano sonata—I was only fifteen at the time.
More than 15 years later, the dream came true. In 2021, I released Behold the Stars, my debut album for Signum Classics featuring a piano trio and violin sonata performed by Kerenza Peacock, Laura van der Heijden, and Huw Watkins.
This album reached no. 13 in the Billboard charts, as well as Apple Music’s Top 10 albums of the month. That same summer, I became a published composer when Universal Edition added two of the works from Behold the Stars to their catalogue.
Thanks to the Joseph Campbell Scholarship, I started pursuing a PhD in Mythological Studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute, where I’m currently investigating novel ways to fuse music and myth through opera, oratorio, programmatic music, and other genre-bending works.
In my spare time, I take joy in the outdoors, reading, and cooking for family and friends.
