In 1955, he founded the construction company "Woodman & Mohme" along with Arturo Woodman Pollit. This company lasted 25 years and built important structures in the north of the country.

In 1982 he founded the left-wing newspaper “La República” and, two years later, the tabloid “El Popular.” In 1985 and 1990 he was elected Senator for “Izquierda Unida (Left United).” His work was interrupted by the military coup in 1992, but in 1995 he returned to Congress with Javier Perez de Cuellar’s party, who was the former secretary-general of the United Nations.

In the final years of the Fujimori regime, he suffered slanderous attacks through the tabloid newspapers, which were funded by the dictatorship. He died in 2000 when he had been reelected congressman. The press room in the Peruvian Congress bears his name, in recognition of his work.
