Born in Villanueva de Castellón (Valencia), he studied at the Valencia and Barcelona Superior Conservatories with professors V. Romero, J. Talens Sebastià, J. Panyella and J. Tordera.

He teaches clarinet and chamber music at the Superior School of Music of Catalonia (ESMUC) since the year of its creation, and performs with the Barcelona Symphonic Orchestra (OBC) since 1993.

He has been invited by different symphonic orchestras, such as the National Orchestra of Spain, the New American Chamber Orchestra, the Gran Teatre del Liceu Symphony Orchestra, the Teatre Lliure Chamber Orchestra, the Mediterranean Camerata Orchestra, the Cadaquès Orchestra, the Andorra National Chamber Orchestra and the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra. He also toured in Germany, France, Holland, Italy, the United States and Japan.

In the chamber music field, he is co-founder of the groups Harmonia Quintet de Vent, Barcelona 216, Diabolus in Musica, Trio Cervelló and Kammart ensemble. His long career in this field has led him to collaborate with numerous renowned groups and performers such as the Glinka Quartet, Quartet Quiroga, Orpheus Quartet, Soloists of Ibercàmera, and the pianists Albert Atenelle, Eulàlia Solé, Xavier Dolç, Angel Puig, Astrid Steinschaden and Dolors Cano, among others. With the pianist Isabel Hernández, he recorded the virtuoso music CDs for clarinet and piano, vol. I, II, III and IV, the two Brahms' Sonatas, and a Tribute to Weber and Rossini.

He has also recorded the complete works for clarinet by composer Jesús Rodríguez Picó, and he has premiered the "Quintet of the Sala de Llevant" for clarinet and string quartet by Xavier Benguerel, "Clarinet concertino" by Jordi Cervello, Concerto for clarinet "Luces del Alba" by Zulema de la Cruz and "Fantasia for clarinet, strings and small percussion" by Juan Medina, works that have been dedicated to him.

He has recorded for Catalunya Música, RNE, Radio France and the Dutch Radio, as well as for the record labels Hyades Arts, Stradivarius, Ediciones Moraleda, Anacrusi Contemporánea, Columna Música and Ars Harmónica. His two recordings of the quintets for clarinet and string quartet by Mozart, Weber, Krommer, Bärmann, Spohr and Reicha with the Glinka Quartet have received the highest consideration from international critics.
