"Never stop, keep learning, keep practicing, seek perfection, but especially at the time of execution: keep it simple."

Model Citizen Media provides a platform to recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.

Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far. I studied Design and Advertising Production at a University quite near Mexico City, and there I discovered my passion and love for aesthetics. I am passionate about visual arts, and my favorite one is black and white photography, for it's surrealism, drama and depth. What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field? Until recently I decided to start with photography as a way of life. Regarding my future in the short-medium term I see myself as working in a magazine as editor-in-chief or working as an editorial photographer. How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements? I think I am quite friendly and communicative, it is very likely that at first seems serious or timid, but not at all, I love to share ideas and receive them. I like working with clients, I have dealt with several of them, as my profession as a designer and advertising producer requires it. If you had to do it over again, what would you change? I would have started from before, however I do not regret anything. Who is your hero, and how have they helped you get to where you are? I think I have different types of heroes, if I had to mention three of them, they would be Michael Jordan, and my mother haha. A common point of view they have is never surrendering, and other qualities are: to practice always, to believe in oneself and to practice a little more. How important are creative education courses? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful? Continuing education is indispensable for development in these areas, I have taken several courses both online and face-to-face, plus I like to research on my own. Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry? Never stop, keep learning, keep practicing, seek perfection, but especially at the time of execution: keep it simple.
