I grew up in Long Beach, California a city known for producing talented individuals. As a kid, I played soccer and lots of video games. I never thought about myself as an artist because I was never good at drawing. I first was introduced to photography on a trip to Mexico, where my mom let me use her point and shoot and from there on I was the designated photographer for all of our trips.
I moved to San Fransico to attend the Academy of Art University to sharpen and refine my photography skills. My love for colors and bright scenes inspired me to pursue still life photography. I seek to make images out of objects, not usually found together. Using vibrant colors and quirky themes, I have been able to make conceptual images that push the boundaries of still-life photography.
