His love of music started at a young age, and evolved and grew over time. From playing saxophone in the school band, to playing guitar in a cumbia band, and now DJ’ing and producing his own music in Austin, Texas.
The nickname “Guira King” was given to him by a close friend DJ LaMoon (Kristiany Vissepó) for playing ‘la Guira’, a metallic percussion instrument used in Cumbia, in bars and clubs to get the people dancing!
