At the age of 14, he started to take jazz guitar lessons. But after a few months and after the sudden and unforgettable experience of hearing Andres Segovia, he instantly changed to the classical guitar.
He has written fiction and non-fiction books and is a reviewer of music and visual art for magazines and periodicals.
