He decides to move to Las Vegas in 2005, working for the dance company Havana Nights and starting in shows like Raw Talent (Hotel Sahara), The King of Rock and Show in the Sky (Hotel RIO) and most recently Vega the Show at the Planet Hollywood Hotel.

His favorite movies with special effects are Friday the 13th, Gremlins, Little Monster, The Exorcist, MIB, Mrs. Doubtfire and Labyrinth.
