  • Profile

I have been with Franklin Lakes Animal Hospital since May 2007. After working as a technician in the dental and surgical field and later achieving my veterinary license, I decided to stay and practice here as this is a great place to work and learn.

I live with my wife Silvina and son Leonardo along with a Red footed tortoise named Fred and a Black and white Tegu lizard named Loki.

I grew up in New Jersey and moved to Montevideo, Uruguay when I was 13 and lived there for 11 years. It was in Uruguay that I attended The University of Veterinary Medicine in Montevideo. After graduation, I moved back to the U.S. and worked for the next three years extensively in the small dentistry field in Miami, FL. When I achieved my veterinary license in the European Union, I moved to Malaga, Spain, where I practiced for a year. In 2006, I moved back home to New Jersey.

My main passion in life – other than small animal medicine – is travelling. I have traveled to many great places and have met many interesting people. I eagerly anticipate all the future travels and all the people I will meet on the way.
