Born in the City of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
In 1993 I bought my first camera with money I received for my 20th birthday after years of wishing one and not being able to have it. A brand new but modest Canon EF-M with a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II.
Only shot amateur photos while studying Sound and Image Design, until 1999 when I become a professional photographer (getting money for doing it).
Since 1999 I design and manage Gustavo Cerati's official website and made designs, directed music videos and documentaries and took photos on tours, recording studios, rehearsals, etc.
From 2000 until 2003 worked at the Argentine production company Cuatro Cabezas, first as a Web Designer making several websites for their TV shows and later at the Animation Department for the iconic TV show 'CQC' (Caiga Quien Caiga).
In 2007 worked as a photographer, video documentarist and web designer for Soda Stereo (the greatest and more influential rock band in Spanish) for the "Me Verás Volver" reunion tour.
From 2012 to 2023 I shot runway and backstage photos at Paris, Milan, London, New York and Los Angeles Fashion Weeks.
In 2020 and 2022 worked again for Soda Stereo as photographer and video documentarist for their "Gracias Totales | Soda Stereo" tour.

Oh, and I love Polaroids.
