I'm a queer Mexican American conceptual photographer living in Southern California. Was recently exhibited during Photo LA 2016 and separately worked for many wonderful clients, including some in Fortune 500 companies.
For those curious to know, Tyra Banks jumpstarted my photographic career.
Circa 2007, after many attempts at acting, modeling, and yes even singing (butchering the National Anthem is frowned upon apparently) I found solace when I stumbled upon the "smize" queen's show, [Tyra Bank's] America's Next Top Model. Her photoshoots and more specifically the photographic storytelling, compelled me to pursue conceptual photography in hopes of expressing myself in ways that words failed me. Leading me along the way to my current body of work, which focuses on the formation of identity and its outward manifestations.
