In his most recent season, 2008–09, he began the year with Club Biguá in Uruguay, averaging 8.8 points and 3 rebounds per game for the club in the 2008-09 Americas League while playing alongside fellow Uruguay national basketball team members Leandro Garcia Morales and Martin Osimani. In April, he was signed by Italian team Vanoli Soresina for the last 16 games of the team's season.
