Born in 1964 his interest in photography started when he was offered at the age of eight a Leica M2 with a 50mm lens attached, the camera had no light meter and was a 100% manual, so his first images were rarely correctly exposed, that’s when he started learning!

It took a lot of reading and trials and errors but finally he figured out fundamentals like the rule of f16 or Ansel Adam’s zone system, but he was more interested in the works of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Weegee, Sabine Weiss and Robert Doisneau to name a-few.

He then went on to study for a year at the UCLA cinema school where he understood that still images are what he truly wanted and moved across the United States to the Parsons School of Art & Design in New York City where he did his studies in photography, since then he never stopped being a photographer.
