This led him to study years later Engineering in Natural Resources and Environment at the National University of Salta, where he participated as a volunteer and technician in various conservation and research projects, as well as in various surveys and monitoring for environmental studies, providing specific knowledge that led to the study of bird and wildlife communities locally. He has been working as a biodiversity consultant for over 10 years (standing out as a field ornithologist technician) and environmental analyst for different projects, thus touring all the representative environments of northern Argentina by studying some of its characteristic populations and communities. In addition, it incorporates nature photography as a complement to the activities in which it participates and to its sightings, you can see some of its photos here https://www.flickr.com/photos/155350465@N05. The bird-oriented environmental education enabled him to develop training spaces for children and site guides in various communities of different environments, integrating technical knowledge with local knowledge and participating in interdisciplinary working groups. Within the tourist activity, it integrates to date the provincial registry of tourist guides of Salta, constantly training as an ideal guide for birdwatchers, in order to incorporate their experience and passions into a specialized quality service.

In February 2018 I traveled with a group in the magical Puna Argentina! 13 days enter lagoons, mountain ranges, gorges and hills of thousands of colors. I absolutely recommend the service with the excellent guide Adrian Aguero. His professionalism and deep knowledge of this region has made our trip happy and perfect!
