I became an artist the day my mother gave me a box of crayons and coloring book. Over the years crayons turned into pencils and coloring books became blank sheets of paper waiting for me to unleash my imagination.
In middle school I started drawing comic books and doodling in class instead of paying attention to my teachers. During high school I took every art class available. After high school I attended the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale graduating with a degree in computer animation and earning best of portfolio. Once I graduated Art School I fell in love with technology, and so pencil and paper transformed into computer and printer.
I've since, worked as a graphic artist using my visual talents to help clients produce professional quality marketing products.
However through the years, being a graphic artist, work became mundane with little freedom of artistic expression. It was only through photography that I was able to once again find my passion as an artist.
Photography has allowed me to combine two of my greatest passions, technology and art. With my love for these two things, it was only a matter of time before photography became a part of my soul, allowing me to capture photographs that inspire and provoke the imagination.
"There are no rules to good photographs, only good photographs." - Ansel Adams
