During college, he met his former life partner Paola Sanz and started to dance Argentine Tango. After having won several titles throughout Argentina in the categories Tango and Milonga, they moved to Buenos Aires in 2011 to participate in the atmosphere of the capital where tango has its greatest influence on the world.
The couple's fourth participation in the World Championship of Argentine Tango (Campeonato Mundial de Baile de Tango) ultimately brought them the first place in Tango de Salón in August 2012. After having honed their dancing for ten years together Paola and Facundo started to teach and dance their tango worldwide. Invitations to the most prestigious tango festivals in over 20 countries followed this success, among them Tango Festival Internacional Granada, Istanbul Tango Ritual, Shanghai Tango Marathon and Łódź Tango Salón Festival. They were judges at the Preliminaries of the World Championship in San Martín de los Andes and twice in London.

In Chicago, their classes are taught with an eye on encouraging and nurturing individual artistic styles while at the same time stressing the core movements and strong values of traditional tango. Their infectious energy and love of the dance has created a large following of students in Chicago and the surrounding area. They are the founders of the 312 Movement, which organizes events (monthly milongas and weekend workshops), djaying, performing, and teaching. When they are in town (Chicago), you can easily find them supporting various tango events and social dancing at one of the weekly/monthly milongas.
