I came to violin making after a long journey. I studied viola at the Manuel de Falla Conservatory in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for a few years, and played in various orchestras.
I learned construction and repairing at Cremona's violin-making school. During and after my formation I did many internships mainly in France. One at Saint Antonin with restaurer Claire Mollimard. I moved to Brussels in search of new horizons where I worked for other luthiers before I decided to set up on my own and meet Denis de Fauconval with whom I share his workshop. We have just finished a five-string double bass. I work on construction restoration and set up from violins to double bass.

I believe contact with the musician is an enriching experience for the pursuit and understanding of the sound and appreciating the evolution of the instrument and musician together.
