I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. From a very young age I have always been drawn to making things with metal, leather, wood and other natural media. My favorite media has always been metal. I came to the United States and settled in Florida with my family when I was 17. I had no idea at that point what direction my life would take, but it wasn’t long before I was drawn back to the things I enjoyed most as a child – creating things with my hands. It all began with making individual pieces of jewelry, and later, I became interested in watches. Now I stick with making unique watches and have been for the past 25 years. I am often asked what inspires me and my answer is always the same – I love to create things with my own hands, it is my passion.
