I studied at the Conservatory of music Manuel de Falla in Argentina and hold an MFA in composition and technology from the University of California Irvine and a PhD in Digital Composition from the University of California Riverside. I write sound processing and synthesis tools for composition and taught composition, music theory, computer music and technology at the California State University Northridge, the University of California Riverside and COSMOS UCI where I created and developed STEM curriculm with applications in music and mobile devices.
