When was your lightbulb moment?

Everything started when he and his family emigrated to Canada in 2008. As an architect from Colombia, his first job was in an architectural office as a draftman.  After a while – he realized that he did not want to be in front of a computer “working for someone” for the rest of his life, so he decided to quit his “nine to five” job to become an entrepreneur – with the unconditional help and support of his wife Ana Rosa – he then created MAGIC VISION Photography.

What are your three words of advice?

Passion, Education and Perseverance.  “If I can do it !! Everybody can do it !!” I am a stronge believer that everything that you “dream to be” will come true IF you are passionate, study, and create  a “winning mind set.” Finally, we must do the work and persevere in order to succeed. If you apply that concept, you will have whatever you want in your live.
