In 2002, he made his debut in the film La mujer de hielo, directed by Lídia Zimmerman and starring Natasha Yarovenko and Marc Cartes [es; ca]. Since 2004, he has worked as a dubbing actor for television and radio advertising campaigns, as well as for films. He began in the television world in an episode of Trilita, a TV3 series created by Tricicle.

In 2005, at the age of 9, he became known to the Catalan public thanks to his role as Biel Delmàs in the series Ventdelplà from TV3, where he appeared until the series ended in 2010.

In 2009, he made his first foray into film, playing Dani in the film Cruzando el límite [es], by Xavi Giménez [es] and produced by Filmax. In 2011, he went to the stage in Teatre Borràs [es; ca] to star alongside Clara Segura [es; ca] and Montse Vellvehí in the play Madame Melville by Richard Nelson, directed by Àngel Llàcer.

At the end of that year, he returned to the stage, at the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya to star alongside Albert Espinosa, Joan Carreras i Goicoechea, and many others, in the play Els nostres tigres beuen llet. Espinosa says he has created a fictitious family with the good and the best of Catalan theatre.

From 8 May to 22 June 2013, he worked again with Emma Vilarasau, Míriam Iscla, Anna Moliner, Jordi Banacolocha, Pep Planas, Pepa López, and Joan Carreras, performing in the play Barcelona, directed by Pere Riera, which deals with the Spanish Civil War, centring on the day that Barcelona was bombed by Francoist troops.

Also that year he joined the cast of the TV3 series Merlí, where he played Pol Rubio. The series, due to its great acceptance among the Catalan public, was later dubbed to Spanish for a nationwide broadcast in laSexta.

In 2016, he made a minor appearance in Televisión Española's series El Ministerio del Tiempo, where he played a fictional successful YouTuber. In May 2016, he starred in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet at Espai La Seca in Barcelona, alongside Clàudia Benito, under the direction of Marc Chornet. In September of that year he once again played Pol Rubio in the second season of Merlí.
