Hello everybody and welcome to my spot on the web.  Here is where I put my inner geek to work and present my Art, Photography and Design & Architecture work to the world


I am an associate project manager at an architecture office in Manhattan, but did an dual degree program with Philosophy at RPI.I have so many interests & hobbies that there are simply not enough hours in the day to do all I would like to do. A life-long athlete with Martial Arts training as the basis of all my competitive pursuits, and I have also played almost every team sport. But I also enjoy watching and attending sporting events, with a borderline addiction to the NBA: there is nothing like the sound of that leather ball hitting the hardwood of the court.
I love traveling and experiencing other countries and cultures. I indulge in my love of photography during my travels and can barely keep up with managing dozens of gigabytes of pics from just the last 5 years! But my love for photography actually started as a child, when I started photographing Bullfights in my hometown of Tijuana: and i still have hundreds of 35mm film negatives and prints from those days that I hope to someday convert to digital.... if i ever find the time.
I am lucky enough to have a large group of friends that enrich my file every day.
I currently live in Brooklyn and have been in NYC for almost 6 years, after spending the first 5 years after college in Detroit, MI, but I was born in California, grew up in Mexico and attended college in ‘upstate’ New York: like i said, I like to travel!
One of my friends has called me ‘opinionated’ a few times before, but I like to believe that I just have a handful of topics that I have strong opinions on and that I am generally opening minded. I guess the jury is still out on that.
