Around that time he also taught himself how to play both the acoustic and electric guitars with wich he composes all kinds of music. After spending six years between Oregon, New York and San Francisco, he moved to Rome and became part of the city's vibrant scene, playing with Pasquale Innarella, Henry Cook (Either Orchestra, Mulatu Astatke) and Manlio Maresca among others
