Patrick Roberto. I am a world citizen based in Kona, Hawaii. Originally from Mexico City; I have lived all over North America in search of what all the world has to offer me. I paint pictures with a camera. I have creative eye, but I don’t have the skill to transfer what I see from my head to my hand. Hence, my camera is my paintbrush.
I had a Myspace blog way back in 2005 but anyone who knew me back then who still knows me today knows that I have changed dramatically over the last ten years and I am in no way the same person today as I was back then.
In the last decade, I have moved four times to four different places. I went from Austin to Los Angeles to Toronto to Honolulu to Kona. Each place that I moved to changed me a little bit, and I took that change with me to the next place. As a result, I have a unique personality that is a mix of all those places.
In the last ten years, my introverted nature has become a lot more apparent. I had reservations about having another blog because I take my privacy very seriously and I wasn’t sure how comfortable I would be with putting myself out there. Then I thought about the fact that the longer time passes, the harder it is to remember certain things. Things that I don’t necessarily want to forget. In the next fifty years, if I’m fortunate enough to still be around, I would like to able to look back on my life with a smile and talk about what a great ride it has been. And if I can look back on my blog and reminisce on all the memories that I would have otherwise forgotten, then I think it’s worth putting myself out there once again.
