His co-authored textbook, A Compás: The Flamenco Guitar Survival Guide, will be the first text ever to be used to teach flamenco at Berklee College of Music, where he also studied as a recipient of the BEST Scholarship. He started playing at the age of 12 and has studied and performed with some of the most prolific names in the world of flamenco. His work has also appeared in various film and television projects.
