Hello, World!

section .text


My first memories of taking photos are around 1994, when I was 12, using a Kodak Star 110 camera with a built-in flash my mom gave me as a Christmas present. On the CS side, I've been writing code since I was 16 and professionally since 2005. I started coding in Visual Basic 5.0/6.0 in 1998, then Java, Assembly Language-x86 architecture, PHP, Perl, C++, Scheme, Lisp, and Prolog between 2000 and 2003.


I went back to school at 24, learned & benchmarked Links vs. several programming languages, and then jumped from one company to another. Then, in 2013, I started teaching Programming Fundamentals to first-year Computer/Digital-Robotic Systems Engineering students using Python. It was great. 


Time flew, and in 2015, we moved to CA. 


2018 allowed me to shoot, develop, get into the darkroom, print 35mm film, and use film & digital cameras in full manual mode.


2020 brought the first year of the pandemic, remote work, and photo portfolio revamp.


2021 got me thinking about things I never tried, like learning to draw-sketch, skateboard, fly-crash-lose a drone. So, as part of some of that, early in the year, I also entered into a 6-month mentorship program with David Alan Harvey & Alejandra Martinez - you can check the final result at Burn Magazine.


2022 continues with exciting stuff, mainly new photo essay projects with 35mm film, travel, learning new things, and hosting Los Angeles River X & El Río de Los Ángeles X at the beginning of November.


Notes to myself: It's a beautiful life, oh oh oh oh. Ride it—time flies. Our jellybeans are limited.
