I am a freelance photographer from Caracas, Venezuela, based in Miami, US.

I studied Interior Design, and I practiced it for years, but I have always stayed close to photography. For around 10 years I have been doing documentary photography. For years I had my eyes set on the street, in photojournalism, but it was not until the beginning of 2019 that I had the opportunity to go out and do it. On second thought, I think it was this year that I had the courage to assume that this is what I want to do and went out to do it.

I work as a freelance for AFP, Bloomberg, and Getty among others.
