What is up MM! My name is Gage Vasquez. :) Currently back on this site to thrust myself into the Model/Entertainer industry full force.
I am 26 years old, and have experienced and learned a great ordeal;
Since a young age I have been lured to dance, all styles. I started mimicking Hip Hop Videos and most of all Janet Jackson. I trained my skills by joining local Virginia Hip Hop Competative Dance Teams and personal practice. At age 16, I danced back-up for local artist, TRU.
At 17, I joined the underground Gay & Lesbian Ballroom Culture(scene). I started competing in Models Magazine Face which focused on men whose facial structure was suitable for print work. I quickly picked up the free-spirited and fast dance style called Vogue. I have practiced and mastered the art of Vogue and competed and won various competitions.
I learned to play the saxophone starting in the 6th grade. I received lessons until I graduated and participated in many Band arrangements and competitions.
Jazz, Concert Band, Pep Band, Advanced Band, Competative High Step Marching Band.
Within 6 years I learned to Play/read/write sheet music. I have not played in a while but I have never forgot.
I received a job offer from a friend of mine to become a photographer in a Portrait Studio within the mall. I quickly learned proper lighting, posing, editing and framing portraits with 1 person or a group of people. I took this knowledge and utilized it with my fondness of the outdoors. Although I do not own a camera anymore, and iPhone works just as well. :)
