He studied Fine Arts in Pontevedra, where he met other comic artists such as Diego Blanco, Roque Romero, Miguel Porto, Jano, Bernal Prieto or Alberto Vázquez. Together with them and other Galician cartoonists, he began to collaborate in fanzines and became part of the Polaqia collective.

His comics have been published in fanzines and magazines such as Barsowia, Fanzine Enfermo, ARGH !, Twice Brief, Monographic, Lunatic, Buendolor, You are here, Ragú, From the abyss, El Dios Skunk, Condorito Muerto, La cultura del duodenum or The visitor, who have led him to reap multiple awards. You can also find some of his comics in the compilations of Barsowia (Barsowia on fire, Dolmen) or the Fanzine Sick (Astiberri, 2009). In 2010 he won the Castelao comic award for La mano del diablo (Astiberri, 2011). In 2022 he will enjoy the Spanish Academy Grant in Rome to develop his project StillLife, a silent comic with the aim of exploring and investigating the resources of the image and time in this medium and the narrative possibilities that the cartoon can offer. the sequence and the ellipsis.
