He began to compose and play music at the age of 15, thanks to a neighbor's influence, with whom he learned to play the guitar. With only three chords he was able to compose 22 songs. Thereafter he composed more songs, now holding a repertoire of 70 songs. He also participated in the movie "Que Tan Lejos", directed by Tania Hermida, in which he was a supporting actor playing an egotistical and superficial character.
