Like a rollin' stone. I consider myself an artistic eager guy and I hope it never ends. As you see in the photo, I play the guitar and I play other regional stringed instruments too like the charango from Bolivia and the cavaquinho from Brazil. I really enjoy to learn music history and to stay tuned about new trends. I also have taken acting and playwright class.

In the last years I have been made some drawings and paintings. I hope to increase my gallery soon.
