  • 200+ milongas and
  • 80+ larger (marathon/encuentro/festival) events
all around the world. I am also the creator of (Download: black and white or colored DJ photo, list of DJ sets.)

I do not have a Facebook account, but I maintain a very infrequently updated tango and bandoneon blog: In case you'd want to get in touch, please don't hesitate to contact me via email:
