The “Polish”, even though has Slovenian blood, is one of the strongest spikers of Argentine Volleyball.  In the year 2015, after playing as Wing Spiker and Opposite Player of Julio Velasco’s team, he became the heroes at the Qualification match v Venezuela, with a killing not easy to forget serving in the tie-breaker set that allowed Argentina to recover in the definition moment.  Normally playing as Wing Spiker, the former Velez Sarsfield and Sarmiento Santana Textiles de Chaco player, he is proud of having played the Olympic Games 2012 with the Argentine National Team, having belonged to the grass-root teams, playing with Conte, Uriarte and Crer.  His good performances allowed him to be considered as part of Montes Claros from Brazil and then as part of the Belgium League and in the last season, playing again for Brazil at the Superliga with Sao Jose jersey, losing at Quarter-Finals v Sada Cruzeiro, that at the end became the champion. He also was part of the Argentine Team at the Olympic Games Rio 2016 and this season he finished playing for the Argentine A1 League Lomas Voley team, closing the season as part of the Argentine "ideal" team.
