At 14 he studied in EMU, a jazz musical school in La Plata, and started receiving lessons from bass masters like Karl Miklin and Herve Selin (Europe), Hugo Fattoruso (Uruguay), Pedro Aznar (Argentina), and Argentinean Bassist Alejandro “el zurdo” Herrera.

By 2011 he was playing with Musa, and drummer/ percussionist Adriano "Gaofei" Moreira, in Shangri-La Summit Wing Hotel Beijing as house band MUSA's Trio.[4]
