Nationality: United States
In 1991, Jimi Urquiaga was born as a first generation Cuban-American in Las
Vegas to a hardworking immigrant family. Growing up, Jimi saw the struggles
and sacrifices his family made for him. This instilled in him a "Never take no
for an answer" mindset which set him apart from the rest at a young age.

He fell in love with fashion at a young age and dabbled in design during his
teen years. At the age of 21 he decided to take a turn in a new direction and
pursue a career in Fashion Styling. He moved to Los Angeles, CA where he
stood out for his creative eye and unwillingness to conform to the commercial
market. After three years of working in the Los Angeles and experiencing
much success, Jimi set his eyes on the Big Apple.

Today he is currently living in New York City and working as a freelance
Fashion Stylist and Creative Director - alongside some of fashion's most
influential photographers and directors.
