As a photographer, skilled in portrait and landscape work, he provides head shots for portfolios, fashion photography for models, and creatively captures historical landmarks. In addition, he specializes in event photography at corporate an private events in the tri-state area. His photographs led to the release of his debut book NYC Fuzz which landed him a partnership with the third largest internet based company in the United States, Amazon.

His talent with the paintbrush has gained international success throughout Europe by being featured in Museum of Young Art in Vienna, Austria.

With an entrepreneurial spirit, he's partnered with Design By Humans to release a large array of artistically designed products that have brought up large profits by surpassing sales quotas. Jose's groundbreaking debut into the fashion industry has been met with multinational recognition as the billion dollar corporation, Urban Outfitters has agreed to carry his fashion designs online. Upon receiving his bachelors degree in graphic design from the New York City College of Technology, he’s been hired for branding, web design, photo editing and more.
