He is one of the saxophonists who has most developed the inclusion of his instrument in tango language. His personal stamp can be heard on the recordings as a leader and guest of other artists. In his compositions, he displays music based on tango, jazz gestures and academic procedures, which places him in an area of originality. He toured Argentina, South America, the United States and Europe, performing in theaters, festivals, cultural centers and universities, as well as giving master classes in educational environments in America and Europe.

He is the author of “El tango desde el saxo”, a book commissioned by Melos Ediciones Musicales and dedicated to the interpretation of Buenos Aires music from saxophone.

Playing regularly as a guest soloist of Argentine and foreign orchestras,  he premiered his works Concierto para Saxo Tenor, Bandoneón y Orquesta, Tres Escenas Porteñas, para dos Clarinetes Bajos y Banda Sinfónica, Concertango, para Saxo Barítono y Orquesta (Argentine National Fund of Arts Award) and En Blanco y Negro Buenos Aires for Bandoneón and Six Percussionists. Composer of music for television and radio, for installations in galleries and museums, as well as for animation films. In 1998, he won the baritone saxophone chair for the Buenos Aires Symphonic Band.

He toured and recorded with outstanding artists such as Isabel Pantoja, Sandro and Celia Cruz. He received awards and scholarships from the Metropolitan Culture Fund (2006), the Latin American Short Film Festival of New York (2007), the UNESCO Music Tribune of Argentina (2008), the National Music Institute of Argentina (2015) and the Argentine National Arts Fund (2016).
