A Little Bit About Nando....
My story begins in the United States Army. They sent me to Germany and had me working on trucks and tanks and playing soldier, until one day I heard music coming from a building on my way to the troop shop on post. After discovering a hidden staircase that lead me into the basement towards the band, not knowing my life would never be the same after that.
I even found time to compete on the show BattleBots! with our robot El Cucuy, competing under the team name Ghetto Logic Robotics.

Now, I have 20 years under my belt and I've had a blast meeting and working with some of the most unique, inspiring, crazy, dilusional, and intelligent group of artists and above all clients who make this a life worth living twice.
And I'm just getting started...
They were called CHILD and were in need of a bassist, and I just heppened to be a terrible guitar player, so I'd be perfect! We went on to win every round in the All-Army Battle of the Bands Competition and even got offers from labels which we couldn't sign, you know, because the Army. Anyhow, our drummer ended up teaching me how to tattoo (That's me up there doing the very first tattoo I had ever done!)
