Welcome to A Place Under The Palms!
Hello everyone, I'm Roldan. I have lived in Miami since I was two months old. After college, I worked in the IT world in corporate America for many years until I decided to strike out on my own as a photographer.
My work as a commercial photographer has taken me all over Miami and South Florida. One day I am covering one of Miami's premiere international events and the next it's off to a tropical setting at one of our sunny beaches. I can't tell you how many times someone will see the location of one of my photos and ask me - Where was that taken? Is that in Miami? or When did that place open up?
I often find friends calling and asking about a new place they want to know more about. When visitors come into town, I am often the designated tour guide. After all, there is nothing I love more than exploring my hometown. This is how A Place Under The Palms was born.
