His first love and passion was photography, first starting his career in the field while in middle school taking photos for the schools yearbook. By the end of high school, Vasquez was an accomplished and award winning photographer and held positions as Photography Editor for both newspaper and yearbook staff his Junior and Senior years.

As a musician, Vasquez is quickly becoming a name for himself as a harmonica virtuoso in the music scenes in and around the San Antonio and Austin areas. Picking up the instrument in summer 2004, he practices nearly everyday (it's easy when the instrument fits in his pocket) perfecting his technique.
