Currently, I'm a Sr. Director at Splice, where I lead the Machine Learning & Audio Science Innovation division that I helped build from the ground up. I work cross-functionally at the intersection of Applied Research, Engineering and Product Management, focused on unlocking great experiences around intelligent sound discovery and the next-gen of music creation surfaces. I'm the visionary and inventor of CoSo by Splice and Similar Sounds. I also lead matters related to IP portfolio and support M&A activities through technology and product due diligence.
I bring 15 years of combined experience in R&D Leadership, Software Development, Data Science, Applied Machine Learning, Audio Signal Processing & Product Management.
I hold an MSc. in Electrical Engineering from USC Viterbi, where I spent 2 years immersed in audio/speech/acoustics, image/video processing and ML, working with the Digital Signal Processing Lab, Multimedia Communications Lab, and former Immersive Audio Lab, with advising professors C. -C Jay Kuo, Panayiotis Georgiou, and Chris Kyriakakis. I came to the U.S. in 2013 as a Fulbright Presidential Fellow from Argentina and was also a recipient of a Dean's scholarship, in recognition as 'outstanding undergraduate'. I was the founder of tuneSplit, an early-stage, USC-spinoff startup that developed an optimized, deep learning-based audio source separation technology to isolate vocals and deconstruct stereo music into stems in real-time. (Acquired in 2016). I'm a green card holder under the EB1 NIW category for exceptional abilities in applied science and business.
- I'm a Techstars mentor with the Roux Institute at Northeastern University and enjoy advising early-stage ventures on product and technology strategy. I've had the opportunity to contribute a bit of my time to some great projects and organizations such as SpaceIL (Google Lunar XPrize), Anyone AI, Cornell University's Break Through Tech, tuquejasuma.com (former co-founder) and many others.
- I am a musician and music producer on the side. Here's a music video with my former band Ximetria, which made it to MTV Latin America back in 2011. During my time at USC, I studied Songwriting and was also a singer at the Thornton School of Music's Apollo Men's Chorus. I'm currently working on my next collaboration project, 'Stolen Signals'.
- Like most Argentineans, I love soccer and I play regularly at the Tiki-Taka soccer league in LA.
