JIV was born and grew up in Puerto Rico.

JIV has lived in and played music professionally in Chicago and Denver, and is now in Cleveland.

JIV writes, arranges, and records his own music with the help of the coolest people on Earth.

JIV is a mostly blind due to a retinal condition called cone-rod dystrophy.  He can only see... kinda... with his peripheral vision.  Consequently, if you ever speak to him in person, he apologizes if it seems like he's not looking you in the eyes.

JIV thanks you for checking out this website.
