Personal Life

Rey Rey was born in the Puerto Rican city of Rio Piedras. He became hooked with films, photography, and martial arts as a child. Someone offered him an old film camera to capture a group photograph in high school.[2] To Rodriguez, placing everyone in the proper spot, selecting the correct point of view, and then hitting the button to memorialize the moment was just like learning a new skill. Visual art became an instant love for him, which he would later turn into a profession.


Rodriguez's family migrated a lot during his childhood. He went to Miramar High School in South Florida. Rodriguez accidentally dropped out of high school during his senior year. He then enrolled at Broward Community College in 2003 and graduated with an AS in Emergency Medical Services and an AA in Nursing. Rodriguez graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a bachelor's degree in Film & Video and a minor in Photography in 2009.[3]


Rodriguez began his career as a paramedic while also working as a freelance photographer. He quickly established himself as a renowned visual artist, photographer, and reporter. Rodriguez's painting captures the core of human emotions such as grief, despair, passion, and fury.[4] He has worked for a variety of well-known individuals including singers, elite fighters, fight groups, athletes, corporations, and professionals from many walks of life.
