He studied singing, vocals and repertoire with maestros Tony Madigan, Zenón Recalde and Mariano Detry. He completed his training in acting and musical comedy in the schools "La Base Teatro", "Arte 4", "La Platea" and "Memory". His first foray into musical theater was, at 21, in the children's musical Pippi Longstocking: The Sebastian and Götestam musical, directed by Ricard Reguant, in the role of Alfonso.
Between 2002 and 2005 he was involved in several musical and children's theater productions and performed a three-year tour throughout Spain with the musical shows Grease Tour and Dirty Dancing in concert, with songs from the movies Grease and Dirty Dancing, respectively.
In 2005 he joined the cast of the musical Hoy no me puedo levantar (Today I can’t get up) at the Rialto Movistar Theater in Madrid, which he left in 2007 to join the production of Jesus Christ Superstar at the Lope de Vega Theater in Madrid for the next two seasons.
In late 2008, he opened at the Calderon Theater in Madrid the musical A, un musical de Nacho Cano (A, a musical by Nacho Cano) in the role of the anthropologist. During its second season he played the main role, the singing boy, getting a nomination for Best Performance by a Leading Actor and winning Best Breakthrough Actor at the 2010 Musical Theater Awards in Spain.
Between 2010 and 2012 he was part of the cast of the musical Les Misérables at the Lope de Vega Theater in Madrid and at the Barcelona Teatre Musical (BTM) in Barcelona. In 2011 he starred a benefit concert with songs from the musical Rent in favor of the association Apoyo Positivo at Galileo Galilei concert hall and at the Coliseum Theater in Madrid. In the same year he participated in Broadway Baby, a tribute concert to musical theater composer Stephen Sondheim at Galileo Galilei concert hall in Madrid.
In recent years he has participated in several concerts and musical shows such as The Hole (Spanish tour) and La fuerza del destino: el mejor tributo a Mecano (The force of destiny: the best tribute to Mecano) at the night club Joy Eslava in Madrid, among others.
By mid-2013 overcame a casting of more than 15,000 people to participate in the second season of the musical talent show The Voice in Spain. In his "blind audition", aired on October 14, 2013, he performed the song The way you look tonight by Frank Sinatra (Michael Bublé cover), being chosen by coach Rosario to be part of her team. In the show's next round, "The battles", Rosario faced him against his team partner Cissy Miranda and both performed together the song Yesterday I heard the rain (Alejandro Sanz and Tony Bennett cover). After the battle, she declared him as the winner and therefore moved to the show's next round. In the "Knock-outs", aired on November 25, 2013, he faced Sandra Rodrigo for a place in the next round, the "Live shows", and despite doing a great performance of Elvis Presley's Always on my mind, he was eliminated by Rosario, ending therefore his participation in the show."Les Misérables" (2010-2012), Lope de Vega Theater in Madrid and Barcelona Teatre Musical (BTM) in Barcelona (Understudy).
