I’m originally from Mexico City, and currently live in Los Angeles, California. I found a place for photography in my life when I began working with people. It’s a tool that helps me find, express and share those moments that inspire me to do what I do.
My passion is furthering people through education. I currently direct a multicultural and multilingual school for children with the aim of raising citizens of the world. I also work with a human potential company that provides emotional education and helps people improve their decision-making process.
I first discovered photography at age 13, when my dad gave me a camera to take on a trip. When I came back, I knew I didn’t know much, but I loved looking for the right timing and an interesting story. I still remember feeling awe that first time I saw one of my black and white images come to life in the dark room.
In 2013, I began to take a more serious interest in photography after seeing a friend’s beautiful black and white portrait. I also drew inspiration from greats like Henri Cartier-Bresson and Sebastião Salgado. Soon after, I jumped in fully.
The reason I take pictures today really comes from my interest and love for people. I’m especially moved by those unposed and unguarded raw moments where we glimpse into a person’s nature, their humanity.
