When I was a kid the thing I remember doing the most was drawing. I think growing up with a stutter made me choose to tell stories with pictures instead of talking-- I was good at Show but not so much at Tell, you know?

In high school I remember reading Vincent Van Gogh's biography and his story captured my imagination like nothing before. He saw beauty in everything, had a story full of adventures and his paintings made me fall in love with color. Later on I went to college with the idea of becoming a graphic designer but midway through I took a photography class... and that was it for me. Sometimes you just know, and I knew that was going to be my thing.

I also realized that whenever something cool is happening they always invite the guy with the camera, so there was that as an incentive to be good!

While I think I have a very personal style--very colorful images, dynamic compositions and the occasional visual joke-- I don't have a favorite subject. I like nature, weddings, conceptual portraits... I like learning new things, visiting new places and being surprised.  

I was born in México City and currently based in Dallas but I don't hesitate to jump on a plane or start driving if I get the chance, so if you think that me and my camera can do something for you, let me know!


"Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well." - Vincent Van Gogh
