He accepted a scholarship to pursue a BFA in Dance from the University of Southern California.

He aspires to continue traveling the world to engage with different cultures to better understand his creative mission. He is acquiring a minor in Architecture to combine his visual and kinesthetic talents with functionality of form and space. He is devoted to the improvement of arts education in Costa Rica and later in his career would like to bring awareness of the advantageous benefits of stimulating creativity by leading a project to encourage youths to follow artistic avenues against predominant Latin American stereotypes.
