He was born in Caracas on July 23, 1998. He lived in the José Félix Ribas neighborhood until he was 15 years old. He moved to El Vigía, Mérida, looking for a quieter place and there he discovered the School of Audiovisual Media in the city of Mérida, two hours from the town, where he is currently studying at the Faculty of Humanities of the Universidad de los Andes. It was not until the age of 14 that he used his first camera, discovering his vocation that, beyond that, is a way of life. He is a producer at the company El Regaño.
