I'm a first generation Mexican American born and raised in the south side of Peoria, Illinois. I moved to Chicago in 2005 to attend Columbia College where I also pursued my passion for pop music while working for a record store serving the LGBTQ+ community in Chicago's famous Boys Town neighborhood. After several years in the Windy City, my move to Los Angeles in 2013 helped ignite my passion for photography. I first began to explore the world of photography as a concert photographer working for Live Nation­. The thrill of capturing live shows encouraged me to seek more from the world around me with camera in hand. Over the years I’ve explored many styles of photography from studio portraits to travel and lifestyle and weddings. Along the way I learned an appreciation to see the world in a new light. A world that is much more colorful in every way, shape and form. I'm excited to share my vision with the world.
