I’ve always been a strong believer of creativity and the Arts and have explored those fields through both education (Academy Of Art/SF, San Francisco Art Institute) as well as within life’s own experiences. In my early years (late 80’s-early 90’s), I’ve worked heavily doing portrait studio photography, as well as work as a photojournalist in San Jose, California before moving to Los Angeles to further my career, now shooting images for clients in advertising, fashion, and the entertainment industry (as well as more traditional portrait works).

My trials and tribulations have been long documented in every single photo that I take and through these pictures, I’ve learned more than I could ever learn from a book or a study guide. By using these pictures to portray real emotion, I’ve ascended past typical photography meant for tabloids and headlines.

Mirror photo booths allow guests to learn how to portray any particular image by themselves. Like magic, they begin to create their own pictures and use them to talk about their lifestyles and dreams.
