Pablo Pimienta Born and raised in Miami Florida, Pablo's interest in photography began when he was in his early 20's. What started out as a hobby soon blossomed into a great passion. A fan of the theater since his youth, it was a viewing of "Les Miserables" that first introduced him to Broadway. A desire to combine his love of theater and photojournalism finally brought him to New York City in the summer of 2008. He currently lives in Manhattan with his wife Monica.
