Syntax of Power

Power is the courage, confidence, and competence to make things happen. I want to create in a way that’s incomparable and define my own compensation package. You too?

Syntax of Power is a raw, potent, and spare revelation of how I got to where I am and how I take on the struggle every day.

This book is not about tango, it’s about everything else.

It’s a book about stepping into the darkness of change and creativity. It’s a mix of memoir and well-tested methods for finding power and pleasure. The memoir is there to validate the methods.

Tango Novel: Aleph Bravo Tango

Aleph Bravo Tango is the Novel I wrote with Duro. (Duro y Vio = Dyv) in 2009.

We forbid ourselves to use the word ‘passion’ and instead tried to evoke tango’s true mysteries – the elation, the frustration, the compulsion… Dancers who’ve read it say “How did you know what I was feeling?”

Argentine Tango is more than an elaborate and difficult dance, it’s a transnational culture of intimacy, desire, and dignity. The book is a series of interwoven vignettes, each revealing a facet of the experience of falling in love with tango.

“Just like a clever dance.”

Eric Jørisson (founder of El Corte in Nijmegen)

“This book didn’t just make me laugh. It also made me feel mad, happy, nostalgic, empathetic, represented, respected proud… It broke my heart and then mended it. If you want to know what happens to those who have been seduced by tango, look no further…but beware, you may find that there’s a tanguero in you too, and after that there’s no going back.”

Barbara Salas


Aleph Bravo Tango

I want you to know that you are not alone…

… neither in your dreams for tango nor in your frustrations.

My deepest desire is the same as all my students and friends … those who have yet to start dancing and those who dance a lot.

It’s partnership.

One thing I’ve learned on this quest, we need to:

Stop Waiting for Partners, and start Building them.

I’ve written a 10-step Action Plan.

Are you ready to find the Partners you want?
