After being on a European tour, he decided to settle in France. Ever since, his abilities and his energy have expanded, as it could be seen in the Broadway musical “The Lion King” at the Théâtre Mogador, in the musical “Tarzan”, in Hamburg (Germany) and in the creation “Don Quichotte du Trocadero” by José Montalvo for the Théâtre National de Chaillot, in Paris and on a national and international tour.

His unusual, feline and masculine physique made him a natural candidate to a modeling and performing career, that began when he was an adolescent alongside the Cuban painter Mendibe. A career that he pursued when he was 18 in Europe where the most brilliant photographers and haute couture designers called on him for participating in prestigious campaigns or fashion shows, such as François Rousseau and Jean-Paul Gaultier.
