Raised in Washington, D.C., I moved to New Orleans on Sept. 1, 2001 in search of new opportunities and a challenge - moving here before the 9/11 Attacks provided plenty of both. From my first job in the hospitality industry with Emeril's Delmonico to my time as an Orleans Sheriff's Deputy, I am thankful and appreciative for New Orleans' dedication to providing everyone plenty of challenges & opportunities.
In 2016, I began writing a screenplay in the style of "telenovela" popular throughout Mexico and Latin America. Originally titled, "Déjalos Comer Pastel" (Let Them Eat Cake), "Mundo Sin Fin" (World Without End) is the story of Doctor Elizabet Villalobos-LaBeija, the wealthy and controlling Matriarch of a wealthy New Orleans Mexican-American family.

In recent years, I have been fortunate enough to fulfill a goal of backpacking through Mexico in an effort to expand my language skills and step out of my comfort zone. During my trip from Mexico City (CDMX) to Coatzacoalcos, I find myself in a series of buses, cabs and interesting situations with only common sense and basic Spanish skills to get me through. I love sharing my pictures from my travels and everyday life. Click on this link #MyLife to see more.
