I am a native of Chicago, the Southside to be specific, a graduate of the University of Illinois @ Urbana-Champaign with a BA in Spanish Language & Literature. Photography has been a love of mine since grade school, however in the year 2000 I fell in love with my first camera, a Nikon N70. Most importantly though..I am a father of 5 amazing kids that I love dearly. Sorry if you came here looking for a stuffy, very corporate, "about me" section. If we are to work together one day, I want you to know about me...but really about me. Smile..somebody's watching.
