I was born one December morning to the south of the city of Buenos Aires. To be more exact in Monte Grande, a small town with one storey houses and tree lined streets.
Towards the end of the sixties at the same time that I kept drawing on any piece of paper I could find, my brother was teaching me to identify when it was John, or Paul or George or Ringo that I was listening to. It was also about then that my mum and dad gave me my first camera ever: a Kodak Brownie Fiesta.
My love for music led me to play the drums in a rock band and it was then as well that I began a life long passion with graphic design, which has been my profession for more than thirty years.
They say faith can move mountains but I'd rather climb them, the higher the better. The healthiest and most ecological way of travelling for me has been running the World Marathon Majors.
In the last few years I have made a definite come back to photography. It enables me to create a unique space where I can express and share my artistic perspective.
I live, work and dream in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
