Javier Marcelo Buenavista


I was born in Guanajuato, Mexico an grew up in Hollister Ranch, just outside of Santa Barbara, moved to Lompoc in my teen years and graduated from Lompoc High School. After graduation I started working at The Chumash Casino & Resort until 2016, during the time I worked the night shift for 4 years. I loved my job in the Player Development department, working as a Ambassador Host. I went to college during the day at SBCC, majoring in Business and graduated, and currently reside in Lompoc. Although I’m quite taken with fine art, my love of artistic expression doesn’t stop with photography; I am also an avid painter.
