Oscar was born in Parque Patricios, a tango barrio in Buenos Aires. His parents were tango dancers and milonga organizers and Oscar learned the codigos of the milongas at an early age. He is very milonguero, respected by the old guard in the milongas of Buenos Aires and popular with young tangueros. He teaches with energy and humor, and is especially interested in the dynamics and cadencia in dance. He teaches regular classes at El Beso in Buenos Aires and has been invited to teach and perform at many international tango festivals and workshops.
