He was a 1999 graduate of Colonel White High School. In March of 2015 he earned an Associate’s Degree from the International College of Broadcasting in Video Production/Recording and Audio Engineering.He often performed and collaborated with many local artists at popular night clubs around Dayton. Creating music was his passion and it was his life long dream to share all his talents with the world.

Taco’s greatest accomplishments were his children! He was a dedicated and involved father.He instilled a strong sense of pride and responsibility in them—often sharing thoughts about the seriousness of life, the meaning of hard work, and nurturing their talents to achieve success.All three of his children have been blessed with the same artistic gifts shared by their father. Thus, ensuring that his legacy will shine and live on through them.

This is so hard right now. I've known you since middle school. Remember all of the cyphers we had. High school was even better and I will always remember your affinity for Pumas. You were a genius and a genuine good person who I will dearly miss. To the family, my condolences for the loss of a truly great person.
