Greetings, friends! Welcome to my Gallery.
I was born and raised in the small town of San Luis, the oldest town in Colorado. I grew up on a farm surrounded by all the things that go into ranching and farming, spending a lot of time with my brothers and sisters, and growing up with my parents and my grandparents, where I learned the true values of life.
I left home when I was 13 years old and enrolled to a private school in Sant Cruz New Mexico . It was a shock at first going home just once a month to visit my parents and family, but it made me stronger in the long run for the journey I would take later on in life. I learned how to play guitar and sing while I was at this school and that kept me focused all my years away from home.
I did not start singing until my 3rd year of high school, thanks to a music teacher that pushed me to try to sing. I thought she was crazy , but I was bitten by the bug and soon found out that my music had a way of taking me places I never thought were possible.
My first year of college, I was accepted in the prestigious Adams State Choir, and we toured Russia and many other countries singing classical Music at some of
the worlds greatest venues.
My music became a way of life for over four decades. I entertained as a solo artist from local "honky tonks" for tips, to entertaining our troops in South Korea on 4 tours and 128 shows per tour,I thinks that this really helped me and tought me that you must focus and give 100% to really achive your goals. I now have my own personal recording studio, and my art room to focus on nothing but my art and Music
I have traveled around the world entertaining people from all walks of life with my music, and I also had a passion for photography from a young age. That was an expensive hobby for a young night club musician, back in the days because survival was the name of the game, in those days.
All that changed for me with the age of digital photography. One day a friend let me try his digital camera and that was the beginning. I then bought my own first digital camera and what a game changer that was for me.
I have been learning to improve my photographic skills since that very day, and have never looked back. I am now enrolled In the AWAKE 2017 class with Sebastian Michaels, a true master of photographic art .This class has kick-started my determination to create better digital art. I’m also enrolled in Beyond the Brushes with Michelle Parsley and I’m learning how to digital paint , I’m just getting started but I can already see how this is coming together This is the beginning of a new journey for me. Feel free to join me on this ride.
