Fine Arts, Universidad Veracruzana, such as Teul Moyron, Fernando Meza, Héctor Vicario and Sergio Maldonado.
He has worked as a graphic designer and photographer for his family business and organic produce for many
years, as sports photography for white-water river rafting companies in Veracruz, and as a freelance commercial
photographer for tourism, real estate, theatre and portraits.
Previous exhibitions include solo exhibitions at Manantial de las Flores and Urbana, in Xalapa, Veracruz, and
