I received an email from Tige to do a photo and video shoot in Las Vegas with the new Tige's for 2015. It took me about two days to get to the airport in Guadalajara. When I finally arrived in Las Vegas, Danny and Courtney were waiting for me. I have been to Las Vegas several times in the past few years. The landscape is nice from desert to palm trees to blue water.

Contests are something that most would love to do, but few get the opportunity to participate in. Contests are a world of their own. Personally, I have a love hate relationship with contests. I love winning, but a contest takes a lot of preparation, both mentally and physically. No matter if you’re new to contests or a contest veteran, I will take you into the realm of competing and give you tips, advice, and perspective on how to handle these events.

After a very busy season we flew to Guadalajara, Mexico to spend a few days with Marina’s family and friends. It’s such a big city that is full of so many different things to do. In fact, it’s the second largest city in Mexico. Every time I come back to visit I see new things, new buildings and constructions, but at the same time everything is still feels the same—in a good way. Chill people and cool vibes make this town full of young energy, music festivals, and bars, and there’s amazing food everywhere—it’s just crazy! We love to eat and I especially like Mexican food. The taquitos on the street are just unbelievable as well as the birria, tortas, tequila and mezcal.
