I was born in Miami, Florida and am very proud to be a first generation American born to Cuban parents. From a very young age my life consisted of school, skate, guitar, school, skate, guitar and as I got older IScreen Shot 2015-04-09 at 10.12.26 PM
started to explore other kinds of movement such as inline skating which I became very passionate about and eventually Parkour! My high school friend Spencer Mulligan called me one day and said, “Hey, do you want to try Parkour?” I said, “Sure”, and that is pretty much how it all started. We watched a few Parkour videos on youtube, put a mattress up against a wall, started teaching ourselves flips and the rest is history! All the while, I was a good student and always enjoyed school. I graduated High School with a 3.8 GPA and started pursuing pre-law in college, but a life of “movement” eventually took over and I have never looked back.

I recently moved to Atlanta, Georgia with my teammates Spencer Mulligan and Marvin Ross as part of the WFPF Affiliate Team “Parkour Crusade” and we are collectively pursuing stunt careers! My new love (besides the stunt world) is doing magic, so now my life is pretty much Parkour, Skate, Guitar and Magic! My favorite magic tricks are ones involving a spectator where the trick is done in their own hands… with my “assistance” of course!

I am loving my new ever changing life and the opportunities that Parkour has given me!
