I was born in Patagonia, surrounded by mountains and valleys, and grew up enjoying those mountains. I connected with the mountains at the early age of 12 years old, fishing, walking, skiing, and cycling. I studied in the School of Mountain Guides in Mendoza, Argentina, where I have worked since 2005, guiding on Aconcagua and other great mountains of South America.

In that time, I have guided and helped with over 40+ expeditions on Aconcagua.   My wife Eliana and I are completing the construction of our home in El Bolson, Argentina where we hale also constructed a zip line course, called Patagonia Canopy Tour. When I’m not in the mountains, I enjoy spending days with our young daughter, Luma, and I work as a carpenter and really enjoy woodworking.
