I was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico. My parents are the most amazing influence I could have into my passion. My father was a Finance Manager for ITT Financial all his life and my mother was a hair dresser who ran a wonderful business from home for half of her life and later became a beauty consultant for Walgreens. She passed away at the early age of 47 yrs old. I was only 20 years old when she went to be with the Lord and all that I have from her are the memories of my childhood and the million photos my father took of her and the rest of the family.
