Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, he obtained his Bachelor degree from the Haute École des Arts du Rhin - Académie Supérieure de Musique de Strasbourg in 2023. He is also a graduate of the National University of the Arts ( Bachelor's degree in musical arts-composition) and the Manuel de Falla Higher Conservatory of Music (musician-guitarist). He currently lives and works in Strasbourg, France, where he is pursuing a Master's degree in composition with Daniel D'Adamo and in electroacoustic creation with Tom Mays. He is also studying for a Master's degree in Composition Creative Practice at the Hochschule der Künste Bern (Switzerland) with Xavier Dayer and Simon Steen-Andersen.

His works have been premiered by Ensemble Accroche Note, Ensemble Linea, Input Duo, Nuntempe Ensemble, among others. He participated in several workshops given by Bernhard Lang, Francesco Fidelei, Martin Matalon, Bryan Fernyhough, Steve Reich, Salvatore Sciarrino, Terry Riley, Sivan Eldar and Heiner Goebbels, among others. He won the Short Operettas 2024 prize (Ensemble Multilatérale/Mozarteum Salzburg) for his project "L'écosystème humain" with the writer Giuliana Kiersz, and also won the 2018 National Arts Fund creation prize for his lyric drama project Una Red de Mirada, el hombre y su dolerme (based on texts by Hugo Mujica).

He has been selected as composer-in-residence at the Fondation Royaumont (Académie Voix Nouvelles 2024), Studio éOle, the Logelloù Centre for Artistic Exploration and Creation, the Mixtur 2021 Festival in Barcelona, Spain, the Experimentation Centre at the Teatro Colón, Nanóperas, the Teatro Nacional Cervantes and the Centro Cultural Kirchner (Concert with Terry and Gyan Riley).

As an arranger and musician, he has taken part in various popular and academic music groups performing in different concert halls in Argentina, Spain, France, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Peru, Paraguay and other countries. He composed and performed the music for the short film Together and alive by director Iara Schteimberg (awarded at the Tel Aviv International Student Film Festival, Israel, 2017).

Upcoming projects for 2024 include creations for Collective Love Music in Strasbourg, Ensemble Proxima Centauri in Bordeaux, Ensemble Multilatérale in Bad Ischl, and Ensemble Linea in Royaumont. Influenced by literature and the visual arts, his music frequently explores intertextual processes and counterpoint techniques, as well as researching and reflecting on timbre in constant dialogue with electronics. Adhering to the idea of the Musée Sonore Imaginaire, considering that each gesture has a precedent, a possible evocation, a genealogy, a network of temporalities, views and thoughts, his compositions seek different sound morphologies from which to pursue research and creation.
