"If I leave this World a little better than I found it, then I have succeeded." - Dawg
Dawg is on a mission to leave the World a little better than he found it.
He creates and performs music with his bass, he acts for films and music videos and he stimulates minds with his creativity.
He has been acting all of his life and also playing the bass since 5/16/95. He has performed all over NYC and even put together A Day in the Park, an all free, all day music festival on 8/23/03 in Battery Park Manhattan to raise money for kids in the Greenwich Village Youth Council. It allowed them to buy instruments and pay for lessons.
Dawg organized the event as a labor of love - everyone involved donated their time and services. He didn’t want money. His reward was to help kids make music and for him and his band to close out the event performing with all of Manhattan in front of them with a gorgeous sunset including the Statue of Liberty to their backs.
This was a goal he set for himself after being seriously injured in a house fire February 27th, 1999. Dawg literally burned in his sleep, spent 8 days in coma then flatlined before being given his 2nd chance.
Over the next few years, Dawg continued to play 5 string bass in several different bands, exploring new flavors of funk, hip hop, rock, ambiance and more. Although he found several solid bands in this time, he never quite found the loyal, focused team he was looking for.
In August 2006, Dawg moved to Los Angeles seeking new creative ventures. He performed at several open mics but somehow found himself doing more acting than music. He appears in several independent film projects and was even featured in reggeton artist, Hector el Father’s music video “Maldades”
In 2009, Dawg started his career at American Radio Networks in Hollywood as a radio announcer. He quickly moved up the ranks to having a 1 hour live show on kclafm. His shows innovated interviews with subtle background music and other audio treats.
As his talents, ideas and network grows, Dawg prepares the next batch of innovative audio and visual programming that entertains but also educates positively. He will be broadcasting from several different venues, trying to make a positive difference in this World by reminding everyone that the glass is half full, if we choose to see it that way.

Although Art is Dawg's primary purpose, he is also an accomplished business person. Please see the Business Section for more information.
