I am a mask maker. I used to - and still do on occasions - perform. I like to express myself through different mediums, but it often comes down to creating images or visions to share with others. I accidentally started making masks during my years training and performing as a professional wrestler, Lucha Libre style .I now make masks independently from wrestling and enjoy staging photographs with them; they have become a way to react to the world around me - a location, a person, a mood. By masking someone a certain way, I feel like I get to reveal something I would not otherwise get; reach a layer of intimacy or strange or even silly surreally sensual. I invite you into my visions of a world that does not always have to make sense.
