Born and raised in Lubbock, TX, Tino got into radio at the age of 15 holding the #1 night show in his hometown! Two years later he took the show to San Antonio where his buzz began to grow massively. After his San Antonio station flipped formats, Tino decided to move with his manager, Eric Sean, to Los Angeles. Tino worked part time at the legendary KIIS FM as a late night board operator. He soon started running the boards for the hugely popular Ryan Seacrest morning show. A few months later a full time position was offered at Hot 94-1 in Bakersfield, CA where Tino currently resides.
Aside from radio, Tino's music career is becoming quite serious with singles in rotations at stations all across the west coast. Tino has worked with artist such as Baby Bash, Play-n-Skillz, DJ Felli Fel, Ray Lavender, Paul Wall as well as Three 6 Mafia! Not to mention production from DJ Frank E! who produced Chris Brown's "Yeah 3X", Enrique's "Tonight" and many other countless hits.
