Fourth in a loving and boisterous family of eight, Pablo’s love of music was nurtured from childhood where music played a prominent role in all activities—from toy round-ups to holiday celebrations and summer camping trips. However, he discovered the healing power of music while teaching himself the guitar during a rough patch in his late teens.
Pablo graduated in 2001 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Minor in Business from UCLA. It was during his first job out of college, working as a Behavior Analyst for families with developmentally disabled children, that he began to incorporate the therapeutic values of music into his work with special needs populations. He also began studying music in earnest at Moorpark College and privately with Washington, DC legend Sam Glenn and other legends, such as John Pissano. Pablo also began to play regularly for the Joe Vento Big Band at this time.
In 2004, Pablo moved to Washington, DC and created Grabielismo Productions, a full-service music and entertainment company. He also worked part-time as Director of Activities at Fairfax Nursing Center where he used music on a daily basis with the residents to entertain as well as to stimulate memory. In 2005, Pablo began classes in Jazz Studies at the University of the District of Columbia.
These days Pablo and the talented group that is Grabielismo Productions can be found performing and producing music with the best professional musicians throughout the Washington DC, Baltimore, and Portland, Oregon metro areas.
Pablo lives with his wife, Danielle, an environmental activist and lawyer, and their daughters Estela Luz and Ada Maria.
