Born in 1975, before focusing on composition I took my Degrees on Chemical Engineering, Music Theory and Piano.

Studies on composition with Josep Soler and later with Luis Naón at the Esmuc, where I got my Degree in Composition.

Then I moved to Paris and received a Master Degree Musicologie, Création, Musique et Société from the « Université Paris 8 », with Horacio Vaggione as thesis director, José Manuel López López and Anne Sedes. The subject of my thesis was Aspects formels et perceptifs d'un environnement rythmique fondé sur la pulsation irrégulière (Formal and perceptual aspects of a rhythmic environment based on irregular pulse).

Still in Paris, I followed the Cursus I at the Ircam, with Yan Maresz and Jean Lochard and then I moved to Geneva to study at the HEM, where I took a Master of Arts Degree with Michael Jarrell, Luis Naón, Eric Daubresse and David Poissonnier.

After that I moved to Rome to study with Ivan Fedele at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia. During the second year I was the composer in residence at the Real Academia Española en Roma.

From 2013 to 2020 I've been teaching at the CNSMDP in the class of 'New Technologies applied to Composition'. Then I came back to Barcelona, where I am co-curator of the Festival Mixtur since its foundation in 2012.

I received grants from the Fundació « La Caixa », Fundación Caja Madrid, Academia Española en Roma, and the Generalitat de Catalunya.

In 2018 I've been awarded the Composition Prize of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.
