About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meet the most quantity of people, experiences and places as possible. Enjoy every moment in the Earth. (Conocer la mayor cantidad de gente, experiencias y lugares posibles. Disfrutar cada momento en la Tierra).

ABOUT ME

Borned in Argentina, I've been raised between Buenos Aires and Barcelona.
Since my childhood I understood the diversity of the world and the importance of every cultural prism.

MUSIC is what I study and my work. I play guitar & violin. I've been in symphonic orchestras, vocal choirs, gypsy jazz groups, Tango's 5tet, and specially Progressive Rock groups. With my actual group, Nau Aletheia, we've write the music of some films too!

Besides music, I love to take photos, and I've a fascination with the adventure (trekking, climbing mountains, hitchiking). I write a blog with my travel stories, and some poems:

I love Art in general, and I like sports too (specially football => BOCA JUNIORS!)

PHILOSOPHY

Agnostic transcendentalist, loving Henry Thoreau and Jack Kerouac.
