Trivia (4)

Due to a traumatic brain injury in 2002, he is near legal blindness and suffers from hemiparesis - the partial paralysis of one side of the body. He credits these conditions in pushing his photographic style forward and fueling his ambition.
Briefly attended the New York Film Academy (Union Sq., NY, NY) screenwriting program in 2005.
While working as a web designer & developer for Verizon Communications in 2001 at 19 years old, he was days away from enlisting in the US Army as a photojournalist or topographical photographer.
The first production he photographed was his high school's production of "Little Shop of Horrors" ( Lawrence D. Bell high School - Hurst, Texas). His next shot at production still photography was 4 years later when he was asked to photograph a television commercial production for the Texas Dept. of Health.
