Art has always spoken to me. When I was a younger I found a really good cartoon my older brother drew, and it amazed me ! It amazed me because at the time he’d drawn it he was younger than me. I thought to myself, if I want to be that good I better hurry up and start practicing! So at the ripe age of 7 I put away my childish aspirations of being a policeman/astronaut, and I set out to be an artist. Unfortunately like so many dreams, mine were left unguarded, and an unprotected dream has very little chance to thrive. But even in its weakened state it refused to die, so here I am nurturing my dream to create art. I am here to create a visual representation of how you see the best parts of yourself, and how the world should see you. I am here to create to create gasps of excitement , followed by Oh, I love that ! I am here to help guard your dreams. I was born and raised in the Bay Area. I grew up in Oakland, but now I live outside of Austin with my girlfriend and 2 kids. I have a formal photography education from Chabot College, but my appreciation for photography began years before that, when my mom decided to build a darkroom in our once toy room, (its now her sewing room…. I come from crafty people!) I am a 6th degree black belt In Kajukenbo, Ive practiced Capoeira, Escrima, and was an amateur US Thai Boxing heavy weight champ. I also love burritos, power naps and motorcycles!.. yup its official Im a guy ! It seems like no matter what im going through , if I listen to some reggae all is right in the world.
