I was born in Rota, Spain in 1981, arriving in the U.S. a year later to grow up in 6 states and countless different houses.
I joined the Navy in 2000; serving as a Photographer stationed in Yokosuka, Japan onboard an aircraft carrier until I left to pursue wackiness and shenanigans.
I settled down after graduating from the New England School of Photography. However, I eventually gave in to my nomadic tendencies, leaving my home to join the crew aboard a 36 foot catamaran that crossed the Atlantic and eventually landed in, of all places, Rota, Spain.
I recently returned to my home for over 10 years Austin, Tx to weild an Xacto and eat tacos…so many tacos, before heading to Brooklyn to wield an xacto and eat hot dogs...so many hot dogs.
