He met many specialists that braided thin strips of rawhide in Ayacucho who enriched his expertise. He prepares his own raw materials with an artisanal process to treat the leather avoiding the use of chemicals. Since 2001 he participates in the “Tether Room” of the Sociedad Rural Argentina show in Palermo. In 2018 he participated in this show as a member of the jury. Several of his works have been exhibited in Argentina and Brazil.
