On February 18th, 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 had to make. 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 and Creative Direction. He moved to Los Angeles, 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.
