“I left home after finishing college in 2000 when I was 24 years old. My first stop was Miami. Life was fantastic in South Beach. At that point, everything was new to me, I felt as if I was in Paradise. While I worked as a personal trainer, several porn companies attempted to induce me to work with them. The money was tempting, but the altar boy in me won out over the devil in me.
“After a couple of years, I moved on to New York City, where I started working as a flight attendant. I was flying long-haul routes between Puerto Rico, New York City and South America. Tired of life on the wing, but still in the Big Apple, I started dancing at the Gaiety Theater in the Time Square area. It was the first time in my life that men showered me with love, attention and affection, telling me I was handsome and beautiful. It was a sensory overload. Working there, I met many people who were edging me ever closer to work in the skin trade.
“A year later, I crossed the continent to explore the fabled Golden Gate I had heard so much about. San Francisco was everything I had dreamed of. It was there that I was enticed to work at the famous Nob Hill Theatre, a place I consider to be the cradle of my career in erotica. There, in Baghdad-by-the-Bay, I met most of the porn industry honchos.
“When I was living in San Francisco, I liked to visit Union Square, and I enjoyed long walks to Golden Gate Park. I liked to feed the squirrels and visit the buffalo herd. Also I liked strolling in the Castro, but I wasn’t very familiar with the club scene.
I was like a kid looking in on a candy store, but not really knowing how to get in. I never really went into the bars. Even though I was a totally nude go-go boy, I was still pretty shy. I was hoping someone would see me walking by and pull me in.
“I am a huge fan of the Folsom Street Fair. I enjoy the freedom you can experience only on the streets of San Francisco. We can let our hairy asses hang out, and hold hands in broad daylight! Believe me, we couldn’t do that in a million years in my hometown of Buenos Aires, or ‘Bueni,’ as I call it. The gay scene down there is still unfortunately pretty repressed, although there are major gay discos and saunas that rock around the clock.
“While I was dancing in New York, I met Mexican television producers who invited me to work with them. The idea of appearing on Latin TV seduced me from the first moment. So I didn’t sweat it, and gladly moved to Mexico City. As I prepared for my television debut, I learned that I had to blunt my sharp Gaucho accent. Nowadays you can’t identify my accent. I went to language boot-camp to learn how to speak Spanish without a telltale South American accent. I did live appearances at clubs in Mexico City, and many TV commercials, and I was the poster boy for one of the most important discos. People there loved me, and still do. I think that was the key of my success in that country. To become one with the people.
“When I started working in a very popular soap opera, I received the third proposal from Colt Studio. While on the telenovelas I had so much fun, and I had the opportunity to meet many Mexican celebrities. I always appeared almost naked; I must admit I enjoyed that very much! I guess I was just eye-candy. After contractual disagreements I decided to depart Mexico, and accepted the longstanding Colt Studio proposal. I moved to San Francisco, where my new, more sexual life blossomed.
“My first shoots were awesome, I felt remarkably comfortable. John Rutherford asked me if I had not done porn before, because I was so natural on screen. I fell right into it was my pairing with the incredible Luke Garret. Our personal chemistry made me oblivious to the cameras and crew around us. I didn’t need any little blue pills, Luke kept me hard during the entire session.
“The one who captivated my undivided attention was sexy Italian Carlo Masi. I was single for five years, and the thought of a serious relationship was the last thing on my mind. But Carlo seduced me mind, body and soul; so we quickly decided to become boyfriends. Wonderful things began to unfold for us, as well as complications. We were living in San Francisco almost a full year, but later we decided to move to Carlo’s home city: glorious Rome. At first it was a major challenge to adapt myself to European culture. Carlo was my connection, my guide, my translator, my loving facilitator, he gently eased me into the stylish Italian lifestyle.
“My actual persona is very different from the boy you watch onscreen. I know sex is an important matter in life, but it is not everything. Onscreen I am 110% sexual and dominating. Actually, I am dominating in real life, but not so pervasively sexual. I am a very quiet and calm man.
“My favorite movie is Naked Muscles, where I was on the cover, and featured in two scenes. One with Chris Wide, the other with my boy Carlo. Shooting the scene was complicated. It’s not easy shooting a scene with someone you are involved with. When it is something solely physical, it’s much simpler.
“I also like my solo in Minute Man 29, where I was also featured on the cover. It took a very long time shooting that scene due to technical difficulties; it was a very hot day, and my tender skin burnt in no time. But it was worth the sunburn; that movie earned the 2008 GAYVN award in the best solo category.”
