"Choby", as he is known, is an actor whose origin is considered as being from Ures, Sonora, since he grew up there from the age of three years up until he was fourteen, age at which he returned to Hermosillo to continue his studies at Normal del Estado.

In 1974, his artistic career began when he appeared in several plays in the city of Hermosillo. In 1979, he moved to Mexico City to study at the Instituto de Arte Escénico until 1984, in which he began to perform university theater with José Ramón Enriquez in "Ciudad sin sueños". In 1985, he returned to Hermosillo and acted in the well known play “La Tuba de Goyo Trejo”, also participated in several commercials and TV shows. He stayed until 1991, when he returned to Mexico City starting with the play “El Jefe Maximo”, for which he is nominated as revelation of the year by the Critics and Chronists Theater Union. During the next few years, he continues to perform in a series of plays, films, soap operas, and TV shows. In April 1998, he married María Eugenia Leñero and lives in Mexico City.
