I was born in a small town in the middle of Argentina in 1970. After playing trumpet in band for many years I studied composition and conducting in my home country, as well as in Italy, Switzerland and France, where I have lived since 2002.
I hold master’s degrees from the conservatories of Zurich and Basel, as well as a master’s degree in politics and Cultural Management from the Institute of Political Studies at the University of Strasbourg. Further studies have taken me to the Istituto Superiore Bandistico Europeo (ISEB), in Trento, Italy.
