My parents migrated from Nicaragua to Los Angeles in the 6o's. My father Jose, was a full-time architect by day and hobbyist photographer, illustrator, and film maker in his extra curricular. In turn, my older brother Tony, sister Lorraine, and myself eagerly took interest in creative fields. As a young tyke, I sat at my father's drafting table and began to explore drawing rudimentary floor plans and layouts, which evolved, into a foundation in level design. Later my older siblings introduced music, film, art, design, and photography. These influences coupled with a fanatic video game habit, eventually led me to pursue an education in art and career in game development as well as photo side projects.
