Grew up in Marlboro Projects in Brooklyn, NY with a diverse multi-cultural circle of friends, each offering different musical influences to his young ears. Purchased his first 45rpm Vinyl in '74 and never stopped. In 1980, Nino's mixes were featured on NYC's original 92KTU Radio hosted by Carlos DeJesus. His favorite DJ residency began March of 1997 at "The Greatest Bar On Earth” operated by “Windows On The World” Restaurant atop Tower #1 on the 107th Fl. of The World Trade Center and lasted for 4 yrs. until 9/11. Employed as a DJ at first and later began promoting & DJ'ing lower Manhattan’s hottest Latin ‘After Work’ party dubbed “Mambo, Baby?” Thursdays. The "Mambo Baby" nights featured Latin music's greatest live shows on a weekly basis. Showcasing performers like Tito Rojas, Tony Vega, Tito Nieves, Miles Peña, Wayne Gorbea's 'Salsa Picante' and legends Johnny Pacheco and El Gran Combo just to name a few. His versatile music programing included Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, HipHop, R&B, Club Classics and House.
In early 2000 Nino was handed the hosting duties of a Friday night Disco Dance party called "Glitter" at 'The Greatest Bar'. His well rooted Disco music knowledge played a big role for this great opportunity. He contracted Disco artists like Tavares, The Trammps, Musique, Crown Heights Affair, BT Express, GQ, Brass Construction, Lolleata Halloway, France Joli, Debbie Jacobs, The Ritchie Family, Carol Douglas & many more, making the "Glitter" parties truly 'Legendary'.

Through Midnight Music promotions, he’s hosted events at E’toile, The Russian Tea Room, Vudu Lounge, The El Flamingo and NYC landmark Tavern On The Green. Nino is still kicking ass on the decks in NYC clubs, lounges, big Weddings & other private mobile gigs along with internet radio shows.
