Since August 1996 together with Tomás García Ferrari I work as (bi)gital», a design organization focused on digital projects and infodesign.

I started in 1994 with my first new media experiences working as a free lancer for digital presentations. Later, in 1995 I did my first web design project. In 1996 I was hired to develop the first website for the Buenos Aires Book Fair hired by Clarín, the sponsor for that project. It was there where I met Tomás and we started, together with Charly Alberti, the first website for the Argentine pop band Soda Stereo, and a few months later, the CD-ROM “Comfort y Música para Volar” for the same band.

During ten months between 1998 and 1999 we were living in the Akademie Schloss Solitude, in Stuttgart (Germany) with a scholarship, selected by Prof. Gui Bonsiepe. We developed for that institution a website with a “proto” CMS –Content Management System– that gave them the possibility of keeping the site up-to-date.

From 1992 to 1996 I worked at Fontana diseño, a design company in Buenos Aires specialized in corporate identity and editorial design, among others. During that period I also participated in the design magazine tipoGráfica.

I graduated in 1994 as Graphic Designer at the University of Buenos Aires, Facultad de Arquitectura, Diseño y Urbanismo. Nowadays I‘m doing a Master at the University of Buenos Aires in Theory and Communication (DiCom).

I started in 1991 as a free lance junior designer while I was studying Graphic Design at the University of Buenos Aires.

I was a tutor in Communication Design at the University of Otago, (Dunedin, New Zealand) in 2007, Guest Professor of New Media Design at the Burg Giebichenstein, Faculty of Design, Halle an der Saale (Germany) in 1999/2000. Before, I taught Typography in the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Urbanism of the University of Buenos Aires as assistant of Prof. Carlos Venancio and Editorial Design at the Escuela Superior de Periodismo, Buenos Aires.

I gave talks and workshops in several exhibitions, festivals, symposiums and conferences in different countries.
