About me

Freelance illustrator, Argentinean, father.
Being very young he begins to publish at the press from Buenos Aires, until at middle 90’s travels with his backpack by Europe. Passing through Barcelona he falls in love with the city, where he has resided ever since.
His narrative, graphic, and illustrative style presents a fresh take on people, places, and things. His work can be found in major newspapers and magazines around the world.
His versatility has allowed him to work in either publishing, press, books, motion graphics, advertising or comics.
