I was born and raised in Southern California where during elementary school I attended an aftershool program called Children´s Artwork Shop to guide creativity for kids. As a child I always dreamt of making movies and pictures. I wanted to put the silly little daydreams in my head onto the screen and bring them to life. I always saw myself as an artist, and knew early on that I would have an out of the box creative career. I have always loved that mysterious box called camera, could see just about the way we do. How was that possible? My parents were avid photographers so there were always cameras around.
