Over a decade ago I was doing some pin-up modeling for local photographers and decided to incorporate my fandoms and comic characters into the photos and it sort of took off from there.

I come from a family of artists and since early childhood I knew I wanted to share art and love with my community and I started going to art classes at an early age, then, later on, I started learning English, taking classes at the Cambridge Institute in Buenos Aires, at the moment I didn’t realize what a powerful tool it was to be able to speak more than one language. Read more>>

Hair has always been a part of my life. I looked at hair as an art or a blank canvas there for creation. I first discovered my passion at the young age of 13.

Even my brief story takes me back to my childhood. I grew up playing every sport you could name and became a competitive athlete as I got older. It’s always been in my blood; my dad ran track for TCU and my mom was an athlete with a number of outlets. After high school, fitness was always the constant in my life and it was always my outlet, no matter where I was or what I was trying to accomplish. Read more>>

I went to college in Nashville for music business and spent 12 years working at major record labels and publishing companies. My wife and I decided to move back to Dallas to be closer to both our families. Needing a new industry, I knew I wanted to stay within the creative arts and landed on photography.

I started college as a Psychology major with a minor in Drawing and Painting. I got a job at a local children’s portrait studio in the mall right after my 18th birthday.
