About me

I like to travel and have been to many places like California, Europe, Maine and Mexico. I live in Washington D.C. and have also taken pictures around my home including the new WWII Memorial. Digital cameras come and go so like everyone here I am always trading up. Just finished shooting the latino festival in mount pleasant neighborhood of washington dc. There were a lot of colorful people there. My education is an AA degree in Photography from Montgomery college in Maryland, though I have found that photography is a continual learning experience.
