I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Yes of course, the life of a musician is difficult. It takes a lot of discipline, many hours of study and sometimes you need to have another alternative job. It takes a lot of patience, knocking on doors and being opened in learning.

It has happened to me many times to want to work on projects. I showed them my work but there was someone before me.

But the most beautiful thing about this way is working with your passion. That moment always comes.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am passionate about music for film, tv series and instrumental music. I am working with “Music Solution” company, who I represent in Argentina. We work on different projects. I’m working as a composer and music producer and generate new clients. I consider myself a creative person.

Many times I have worked on something else that did not make me happy but I needed to do it, and now I am very happy to be able to work in music production and very grateful that my work is recognized with awards and by other artists to know the dedication is worth it.

What are your plans for the future?
Currently very excited about the release of the new album “United Themes” and I’m very excited to count with the sponsorship from the Make Art Not War Foundation.

I’m going to recorded another instrumental album of piano and strings with the great Venezuelan producer Raniero Palm. I am planning to hold a series of concerts in different cities.

I hope to continue work for new films and my dreams are to compose the soundtrack on films in Hollywood.
