Hernán began dancing at the age of seven, studying Argentinean folklore dance with Monica Maturano.

He was also infuenced by Luis Canan, Jorge Torres, Francisco Forquera, and Carlos Perez. Hernán has taught and performed at various festivals, milongas and studios in New York and Massachusetts and has performed and taught in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, and Argentina. He was a principal dancer in the off-Broadway dance play Let’s Speak Tango and choreographed and starred in the short film Gardenias. He performed in the last four productions led by Maestro Romulo Larrea (Tango First Century, Spotlight on Tango, TANGOS: from Gardel to Piazzolla, Tango For Lovers Only) across the United-States, Canada, and Europe.
