Bio

San Juan, PR 1989: My dad used to work for Kodak and the company held a photo safari day in Old San Juan just when disposables were hitting the market. Fond memories of that day but nothing came out of it. Too busy doing youth sports plus skateboarding, riding my bike around and picking up bodyboarding.

Las MarĂ­as, PR 1997: Borrowed my uncle's passed-on-to-my-sister Canon AE-1 for my first ever 35mm SLR shooting experience. I shot one 36 exposure B&W roll while on a friend's mountain home. Until this day, some of my best pictures came from that one roll.

Tucson, AZ 1998: Being outdoors so much made me buy my first point and shoot...a Kadak Advantage Photo System camera...YIKES!!!

New York City, 1999: While on a 24-hr stay in NYC, I visited B&H Photo. My friend was getting a 400mm zoom lens for his honeymoon safari trip, so I decided it was time to give my photography instinct a real shot. I purchased a Canon Rebel 2000 kit and spent the rest of the year in AZ and my return to PR hooked.

San Juan, PR 2002: Shot my first unofficial wedding with my Canon Elan 7e. Just took some B&W pictures for a friend as an original keepsake. From then on I have shot over 30 weddings -both for hire and for fun. And photography is still not my real job.

San Juan, PR 2005: Purchased my first digital camera, a Fuji FinePix E510. Yeah it took my a while but I finally caved to digital. Went on to buy two Fuji FinePix F10s after giving my E510 to my parents for a South African safari vacation. Another safari...eventually I will go on one. Plus my first child was born, so that kept my trigger finger happy.

San Juan, PR 2007: Purchased my first digital SLR, a Canon Rebel XTi. I haven't used it too much, otherwise my computer's memory would've run out by now. The truth is I don't have that much time for photography anymore, and that SUCKS! I might need to qu...Nah!
