Hi this is Goliath's dad. My son left this page logged in on his computer. I'd like to tell you... Goliath was found newly hatched in a dragon egg near a volcano in
Hawaii. Scientists brought him to the mainland and he was given to a

I was born and raised in the Mexican American neighborhoods of Los Angeles CA. I got my start in music from my parents, who loved to sing mariachi, ranchera, banda, and corrido music on their karaoke machine at home.

Also, I'm honored to have worked with the non-profit organization Body & Soul (The art of Healing) since like 2004, which is about musicians playing for hospital patients, both in groups and at their bedsides.
