I was bond in Argentina, raised there until I was 16, then moved to California and lived here ever since. I have always missed the social upbringing from down south, but I did well here as I'm a very social person and get along with everyone. Hence, I have a great group of friends, and a great family who also lives in California.
I am a single father with a beautiful 4 year old girl. She's been the best thing that happened to me and enjoy every minute with her. Specially since she's a daddy's girl.
I love the outdoors, camping, snow skiing, and water sports such as swimming, water skiing, wake boarding, or cruising on my boat.
I'm sensitive, care for others, giving, have goals and drive myself to accomplish them. I am also financially stable.
I went to USC and also played in the marching band for 3 years while attending. After graduating I put my degree to use by working as a Stage Lighting Designer. I worked as a lighting designer for live theatre rock tours, and then moved into the film industry working in special effects making physical miniature models, miniature lighting, and motion controls.
Now I work full time as a CNC programmer, and structural engineer.
When I find time, I also stay connected with the film industry, now as a film producer. I just got back from Cannes Film Festival 2012 from showing the latest feature film I produced, and I can surely say I had an incredible time.
I am very much a family person. My family lives in So Cal and we always stay in touch and hang out when possible. I love Christmas time as that is our favorite Holiday and has always been spent with my family since the day I was born.
I have a Golden Retriever which I raised since she was born, and also a Himalayan cat (which I passed on to my mom to keep her company after my father passed away)
I am spontaneous, love traveling anywhere in the world, like new adventures.
NOTE: I'm a photographer, independent and also shoot for 944 Magazine. This is a deal breaker for me. I do shoot various styles including boudoir and fetish styles etc, if this is something that bothers you then it won't work. So please take a look at my work so you can decide.
