A native of New York, Roberto, with a heartfelt desire to create music, struggled to play the piano. Challenged by his peers during formal music training to compose original music, Roberto set out on a music career that would eventually associate him with some of the biggest names in American entertainment and international fame.
Starting out as a percussionist at the age of 11, Roberto quickly adapted to the groove of the drums, often accompanying his older brother in his band. Later, the piano became the mainstay as the universal instrument where he would exercise his creative abilities writing both instrumental compositions as well as music with various lyrical styles.
Roberto studied business and music and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Music at the University of New York at New Paltz. He studied Music Theory and Composition under the award winning orchestral Composer and Conductor Gundaris Pone'. Within a month of earning his degree, he boarded a jet bound for Los Angeles.
Within a year of his arrival on the Hollywood music scene, Roberto landed his first professional studio job with Julio Iglesias at Capitol Records performing vocals on his album entitled "Non Stop". Shortly thereafter, he found himself in the studio with such notable talents as Andrae'Crouch, Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Thomas Dolby, and the list goes on. Another milestone was reached when he performed before millions on the prestigious Annual Grammy Music Awards.
To date, Roberto has participated in music projects that have yielded sales of records, tapes and CD's of over 40,000,000(forty million) copies worldwide.
Finally, in this commemorative tribute to Diana the Princess of Wales, Roberto brings music from the heart to his listening audience.
