Born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1948. He began his studies in Architecture at the prestigious Central University of Venezuela receiving BA degree in Architecture in 1972. He began his career working for different private architectural firms, specializing in designing single family housing units and other residential projects. By 1982, he received a Master’s degree in City and Regional Planning at Cornell University. Later on, he went back to Venezuela and established himself in the city of Barquisimeto where he worked on many interesting architectural projects for 17 years, culminating in every architect’s dream: designing and building his own home. With a keen for arts as well, he took interest in sculpture, after fashioning a pair of earrings for his youngest daughter in 1997. This paved the way to a deeper exploration of more sophisticated proposals, which led him to exhibit his sculptures in several Ibero-American Art Fairs curated by Magda Arria from Graphic Gallery. His work has been shown in Caracas, Barquisimeto, Tokyo, Sofia, Mallorca, Lewis, Hoboken, Hudson City and Miami. In 2009, he moved to the United States as a permanent resident, currently residing in Miami, Florida.
