He was reportedly introduced to fashion by his grandmother (Lyda Garzón de Guzman de Borbón y Borbón)[4] at the age of three, when she would read him Vogue and allow him to play with her various bottles of Chanel perfumes.[5] He began blogging on tumblr.com at the age of 15, shortly after being introduced to tumblr by his high school photography professor. His blog, which attracts over 1,500 readers per day,[6] has been twice featured on the "suggested blogs" page of tumblr.com.[7]

After being featured as a guest commentator on a TOMS shoes article published by the Boca Raton High School's PawPrint,[8] he netted front row invitations to Miami Swim Week by Roberto Cavalli Swim Wear.[9]
