He earned a GM norm at the 2006 Capablanca Memorial and participated in the 2007 Cuban National Championship. After being unsuccessful in earning further norms he decided to settle in Spain in 2007. He earned the title of International Master in 2010 and his second GM norm at the Super-Tournament Sants 2011 placing joint 3rd. Let us hope that he will complete his third GM norm and fulfill his dream of becoming a Grandmaster!
(Note: Thanks to GM Pontus Carlsson for informing me about Orelvis!)
