His most important role came in 2004 when he obtained a role in the telenovela Rebelde playing Diego Bustamante, a student in a prestigious prep school - the best in Mexico D.F. - "Elite Way School", with dreams of becoming a musician.

He has recorded many albums with RBD selling millions of records as well as toured with the vocal group across Mexico, various South American countries (including Portuguese speaking Brazil), the United States, Spain and other Latin counties. Although the band started off completely in Spanish, their success has prompted them to produce albums in Portuguese and English.

They also released their 3rd studio album called "Celestial" which ended the year 2006 in the first position in the Latin Billboard charts.
In 2005 he started his own company (with four of his best friends) of distribution of the Romanian-made cylindrical pendants, called "Ferbuss Fashion", which he and his friends wore in Rebelde.
