Born and raised in Mérida (Yucatán, México), I have visited 20 countries. After celebrating a decade living in the USA, I now live a nomadic life, moving to a different region every few months.
In 2007, already living and studying orchestra conducting in El Paso, Texas, I went back home in the summer to premiere a new tango show, "Lazos de Tango". It is during that event that I took my first dance lessons from professional Uruguayan dancer and South American Tango and Malambo Champion, Paola de Martino. After that life changing experience, my passion for Argentine tango (as a dance) was ignited. Upon my return to El Paso, I started training with Edmundo Rueda.
In August 2012, I was invited to debut as an orchestra conductor in Argentina, an opportunity that I took to also debut on the dance floors of Buenos Aires. My friend, tango mentor, and internationally renowned tango master, Alberto Dassieu (+), took me to the famous "Milonga El Beso", where I had my first dance in the birthplace of tango. Paulina Spinoso, Alberto’s wife and seasoned tango dancer and instructor herself, was my godmother on the dance floor. During that trip, I also visited "Milonga La Nacional", where I received instruction from Maximiliano Cristiani and Fátima Vitale. They had recently won the title of 2012 Tango and Milonga Champions of Buenos Aires.
As a dancer, I have trained with international tango stars such as Marina Kenny, Blas Catrenau, Enriqueta Kleinman, Keith Elshaw, Fernanda Ghi, and Guillermo Merlo. I was an active member of the Pittsburgh tango community from 2009 to 2016. My first teachers in Pittsburgh were Steve (+) and Sandy Langton. From 2014 to 2016, I joined the "Pittsburgh Tangueros" as their Executive Director.
