I am nakaii Dine born for Ya Bahii 'Ta bahii Waters Edge Mexican Clan born for Waters Edge.


I was born and raised in Gallup, NM and have played in bands since my teens. I've played in heavy metal bands in Southern California and played bass guitar for a Navy ships band, I have performed in different countries around the world. Now I just play with my daughters, whom I am teaching. You can usually catch us at Open Mic night on Wednesdays at Coal Street Pub in Gallup, NM. I recently learned how to play the Ukulele and have become very fond of this Instrument. The ukukele is like a puzzle piece that I've been missing musically. I would love to teach others this instrument. I currently play rhythm guitar for the Barbed Wire Band, a country western band.
