In 1989, he moved to Los Angeles, where he completed his master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts. In the meantime, he began playing with percussionist Alex Acuña, appearing on two albums during the early '90s. That association led to countless session gigs and sideman performances over the next decade, both local and otherwise; a versatile player, he was able to work in straight-ahead jazz, Latin jazz, salsa, fusion, and pop/rock contexts.
