I was raised in La Paz and went to San Ignacio School for 10 years to finally graduate in Domingo Savio. I started my guitar and piano studies when I was 9 years old with my father and grandfather who also were musicians. I was part of a Kiss Tribute Band when I was 20.

I have 2 children, my son is 18 and my daughter is 14. They are into music and painting..
