Personal life[edit]

Professional career[edit]

Starting his career in Puerto Rico, he has already performed in Latin America,[1] including a 2007 tour in Ecuador, Colombia and the Dominican Republic,[2] as well as United States. He has released seven albums. In 2009, he headlined "El coquí que quiso ser sapo" a children's musical written by Sunshine Logroño, his first serious incursion in acting. Also, that same year, he was called to be the main actor of the movie directed by David Impelluso,[3] called Nadie Sabe Lo Que Tiene,[4] that came out in 2010.
