Born on a spring day in the Peruvian capital of Lima, music has always played a remarkable part in his life. As a youngster, he learned to play the guitar and performed in several bars in the bohemian town of Barranco, Lima, Peru, where he started to create his own music which was a mixture of latin pop with salsa beats. He travelled around Peru performing in bars, pubs & on the streets too, just him and his guitar, an experience that helped him to learn more about music and his own country. His personality (a blend of music, artist, bohemian and gipsy) pushed him to explore further lands and in 2001 he decided to leave South America for the UK, where he has appeared in many festivals & events with some well-known Latin bands.
