In 1986 he went back to San Francisco State University and studied Computer Science and received his Bachelors with high grades. Now that he had definitely decided what his occupation would be and then later on in 1990 landing a high paying job at Sybase Inc, he decided to concentrate on his Artistic life. Having set aside his musical passion, he decided to concentrate on a new way of expression. He had done photography since he was 12 years old.

One of his main loves was Music. Even though he was completely immersed in memorizing all the songs he could hear and learned to play music by ear from early on, his mother’s adamant rejection of Music studies or any presence of instruments in the house, led him to abandon his passion for something less threatening to his studies at school. He picked up Photography while he was around 12 years old and continued on.
