Unconventional song structure, humor, innuendo and wordplay are staples of his music and artwork.

In 2012 & 2013 he toured Europe in support of his album "Minus Días" and co-founded the 3MB art collective with Adam Green and Macaulay Culkin. In January 2014 he toured Europe and the UK as Adam Green's guitarist, and from March to the December he toured the US and UK with The Pizza Underground as both opening act and auxiliary member.
