I am an LA native, living in Las Vegas, who grew up in Inglewood to be sure, and I come from a family of photographers. My father spent 20 years photographing fires for the La County Fire Department. My mom picked up the hobby from him to become the photographer for FolkWorks Magazine and the Official Festival Photographer for the Summer Soltice Festival put on by the California Traditional Music Society. At the age of eleven, so did I. I borrowed an old film camera of his to use while on a trip to Mammoth Lakes with a friend. We were there on the lake when it was sunny and the next day there was the first snow storm of the season. It was a cold and so windy it pushed us as we tried to walk. In the courtyard of the condo I stayed at there was an old blue Schwinn bicycle. The snow had blanketed it and the light was falling on it softly. Getting back that photo ignited a passion.
Poetry, photography, screenwriting, and storytelling was my major and the City of Angels was my classroom and university. I grew up walking the streets, riding the bus, all while photographing, writing and meeting people.
I’ve worked with many people, of all backgrounds and types. I love people, I love God and I love life. I have no problem working with any certain kind of person and I love every experience I have. I speak Spanish so in case that’s part of your needs, puede tener confianza que no va a estar problemas en eso.
I do this for those who I get to work with and to support a family I love my wife, Patricia and my Son, Evan. You’ll hear a little about them if you go to the Working With Me page found here.
