About Quetzalcoatl Music

Beginning over 35 years ago in garages all over Southern California I began this journey. My love and passion for crafting musical instruments has always driven me, but the knowledge that I now possess would not exist without the guiding hands of those masters who came before me.
Over the decades, I apprenticed under several practiced and generous teachers; masters of their own craft. In the early years of my career, I trained with Kensuro, a master Japanese wood worker. At 26 years old my journey took me to Alaska, I was able to study with the Klinkit instrument makers and begin shaping my own work.
After returning from Alaska, I discovered my first mentor at a Rose Bowl swap meet; Javier Quijas Xyayotl an expert craftsman in Mesoamerican instruments. Finally, it was from my friend and mentor Agustin Rodiles “Tzinzuni” that I furthered my skills at wood carving, and began developing my own path and was finally able to bring my creative visions to life. After years of training I find that my strongest tools continue to be my hands, vision, and mind, in addition to saws and chisel.
While my daughters attended the Waldorf School of Orange County, we were introduced to Modjeska Canyon a true oasis in Orange County and where I was finally able to realize my dream of building my own workshop. I am fortunate enough to spend my days surrounded by nature, where I study new art techniques and devote my time to sharing my knowledge with other fledging instrument makers. I’ve exhibited my work both nationally and internationally and won acclaim for my one-of-a-kind works. My unique journey has blessed me with the ability and privilege to make instruments that assist individuals in healing as well as connecting with their spiritual paths.
