My mariachi journey started in 2001 as a student of the John Jay High School mariachi program. Shortly after high school I attended Texas State University where I continued to study multicultural music and won various awards with Texas State’s Mariachi Nuevo Generación.
I became the mariachi director for Round Rock IDS since 2014 and have since seen the program expand to more schools as well as mariachi ensembles grow from 7 to 25 members.
Round Rock ISD currently has mariachi programs at Stony Point HS, Hernandez MS, Hopewell MS, and C.D. Fulkes MS.
