I’m a Cuban American first generation, born and raised in Miami. In 2008 I was living in my car, struggling to feed myself. lost my phone and basically ran out of gas in my car and in my life, most definitely the lowest point of my existence. I was lucky to find a box hidden in my late grandfather’s house with a substantial amount of money. After many years of what I considered “the thought era” in my life, I quickly put the funds to work in hopes to correct my debts and life. With the last of the $1500 I purchased a camera and 10 years later here I am. A self-taught photographer, artist, and entrepreneur. I've managed to make a business off of my ideas and concepts for almost a decade. I'm the creator of the Black Tape Project. Some consider me the founder or a pioneer of the Genre Body Tape art. Because of my concepts I've been able to travel to over 36 countries and counting, I've been published in countless magazines, worked with directors like Michael Bay (Pain and Gain) and recording artists like Rick Ross and some of the top DJs in the world from carl cox to Afrojack to name a few.
