Izzy’s Papi, is a graphic and web designer by trade… and photographer and hip hop music enthusiast by hobby.
I was born in Monterrey N.L., Mexico, but have spent most of my life in Houston, Texas.
I grew up during the golden era of Hip Hop. I do not like much of the music on the radio these days, especially what falls under the current genre of “hip hop” but there is still some good music out there in the genre. Some of my favorites from then and now are Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, Digable Planets, The Roots, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Slum Village, J-Live, Jurassic 5, The Pharcyde, A Tribe Called Quest , Murs…
You can see what kind of music I listen to on my Pandora profile… although lately you will see that Izzy has taken over my stations. But you should still get an idea of what I like.
Papi likes to take pictures. Papi also likes to help out and volunteer when possible. Various Houston non-profits give me the opportunity to do both.
