He trained as an architect while simultaneously studying music and the violin. He subsequently took higher studies in Logic and Philosophy of Science at the Central University of Venezuela and received a Doctorate in Humanities from Barcelona’s Pompeu Fabra University focusing on his research in the field of music, art and science with the framework of a History of Culture. He has taught at institutions dedicated to design and to music, both in Venezuela and in Catalonia, and is a regular speaker at the Palau de la Música Catalana and Cercle del Liceu, among other institutions.
