And as his two sisters and six brothers, he brings the artistic tradition of the family further.

Already in his childhood he used to watch his older brother Arturo as he was juggling. Fascinated by his brother's skills he tried to juggle himself. His talent, ambition and patience at training impressed his family.

Then instead of using small balls he juggled with footballs; instead of the classical clubs he used tennis rackets and ping-pong balls, and in place of traditional juggling rings he uses the Mexican hats - the sombreros.
