Hanging out at the 2021 LA AUTO SHOW!

I’ve always said that following your passions will lead you to interesting places! As my luck would have it, following my passion for automobiles has led me to the stage at the 2021 LA Auto Show as the recipient of the Hispanic Motor Press Foundation Scholarship Award!

The Hispanic Motor Press Foundation Scholarship is a scholarship dedicated to supporting young Hispanics pursuing a career in journalism focusing on the vehicle and transportation industries, with emphasis on the technology of the motor vehicle.

I applied to this scholarship because even though I’m not technically studying journalism, I am a transportation design student who does automotive journalism on the side as a hobby. This blog is the perfect example of that! Well, I’m happy to say that I was picked as the winner and I was presented with the award on stage at the LA Auto Show!

Of course, this wasn’t the only highlight of my day. This was the first time I had ever been to the LA Auto Show! So naturally my shutterbug instincts took over and I was snapping away at every interesting display or concept car I crossed while hunting down designers and other industry insiders to talk and network with!

So, please enjoy these photos from the 2021 LA Auto Show! Also I wanted to give a very special thanks to the following individuals!:

  • Ricardo Rodriguez-Long
  • Jon Rosner
  • Aaron M. Sanchez
  • Jose Vargas Ulloa
  • Chris Benjamin
  • Angelica Willard

Thank you so much!

Update: 2020 Sucks

A photo from the February Laguna Seca Cars and Coffee event I went to before COVID-19 hit.

2020 Sucks, but I’m still here.

So when I made plans for this website in for my Vision 2020 post, I wasn’t expecting a massive pandemic. No one was, but considering the bulk of the content on this website, it really did catch me by surprise. Man, 2020 sucks!

Since the majority of my content is photos from adventures and car shows from the Bay Area, obviously I couldn’t provide that kind of content because of the lock-down. Instead, I could have just found some other things to write about, since a lot has happened in the past few months; especially in the automotive world.

But I didn’t, because I was too busy with school and existential dread.

So, what now?

Now that the semester in Industrial Design School is over (I passed with all A’s by the way!), I have a little bit of free time. I’m working on coming up with some awesome quality content for this website. I actually have something in the works right now, but I’m not going to spoil it here!

I’ve got lot of photos from some adventures I had before the lock-down too. Even though the COVID-19 Virus put a halt to things, I’m ready to get things rolling again!

So, thanks for your patience. 2020 sucks, but I promise I’ve got more content coming soon!

More changes are coming soon to Corkscrew’d! Since January, I’ve brought Corkscrew’d to another level by expanding my social media presence. I’ve also added an online store for my photos; where you can buy and download quality shots from my adventures to Laguna Seca and beyond.

Now, I’m thinking about adding another cool feature to the website! This new feature will give me a chance to show off my graphic design work, as well as add a new layer to the Corkscrew’d Store!

More updates are coming soon!
