Well, people think that guy is Cuban, Dominican, Jamaican, Brazilian, or Puerto Rican. He isn’t – he’s Nicaraguan – and that Nicaraguan is me – during a performance of my one-man show PET.

The month of May celebrated the one-year anniversary of that show’s premiere. So, I would like to thank everyone that came out to catch all the shows, and/or supported in any way. I would also like to thank the people that came out to see an excerpt of PET the other weekend, as part of the Design District’s new Site-Specific Performance Series.

I was told by a very famous blogger/publicist (who doesn’t have a blog……or Facebook), that  I should share more of me and my doings with you. So, here.Screenshot 2014-06-09 13.46.17Thanks to all the people that came out to my lecture on Hip Hop culture over at History Miami the other weekend as part of our Flipside Kings residency there this summer. It was great to see people genuinely interested and willing to learn – as well as fun

20140129-142126.jpgA couple of weeks back the homies Soarse Spoken and DJ Ynot invited me to come by their radio show, Paid in Full to chat it up a bit about music, theater, carrots, highschool & play some of the new tunes I’ve been working on – as well as some old ones. Here’s the link to the show. Listen, share, and check them out every Wednesday from 6-8 on Klangbox.
