Ia keturunan Meksiko–Indonesia dan lahir di kota budaya Indonesia, yaitu Surakarta. Ia meninggalkan negaranya saat ia masih sangat muda untuk pergi menuntut ilmu di Toronto, Kanada. Sepeninggal ayahnya, ia besar di sebuah asrama. Ia mencintai film dan seni peran semenjak ikut drama sekolah saat masih kecil. Namun cintanya terhadap film benar-benar terasa nyata saat di awal umurnya yang ke-19 bekerja sebagai perekrut di Sterling Life Sciences, sebuah perusahaan yang berbasis di Toronto, Kanada. Di sanalah ia bertemu dengan beberapa teman yang membantunya masuk ke dalam sebuah kelas teater akting privat. Pada tahun 2008, ia kembali ke Indonesia. Awalnya hanya untuk menghadiri pernikahan saudari sepupunya, namun akhirnya ia malah jatuh cinta pada negara ini. Ia memutuskan untuk tinggal dan mengejar karier akting dan filmnya di Indonesia. Menurutnya, film dibuat untuk menghibur orang-orang, apa pun pandangan serta nilai tentang moral dan politik yang dianut. Berdasarkan hal tersebut dan juga karena tantangan pribadinya, ia mengambil keputusan untuk bekerja sebagai seorang aktor dalam film. Ia memilih untuk memainkan beragam peran dan mencoba untuk tidak memerankan karakter yang sama, dan sejauh ini ia menikmati keberagaman tersebut. Dari peran sebagai pelacur pria gay di film The Sun, The Moon & The Hurricane sampai dengan peran sebagai anjing jejadian di film Another Trip to The Moon. Ia sempat memainkan peran utama di film silat Indonesia, Tiga – Alif, Lam, Mim. Dan ia juga mendapatkan pengalaman bekerja di dunia produksi internasional di film Jepang Taksu/Yokudo dan serial Halfworlds yang diproduksi HBO Asia.
