As a photographer used to making work outside of my home. I have been working on self portraits for quite some time. Now more than ever I had myself. It brings out my humor and fantastic ideas into light. Through my camera and love for fables and stories. As an artist it has opened new spaces to make work out of my new normal. I wanted to clear the fe an artist. I have enjoyed myself making images that make my audience think and laugh. It has also been therapeutic for me. A way to live outside this world of A way to live outside this world of confinement, fear and uncertainty.

I was born in Caracas, Venezuela. I started my photography career as an intern for many photographers in Caracas when I was younger. Then I moved to the United States and enrolled for undergrad in Photographic studies and theater at BARD College. Then transferred to NYU my junior year . I also completed an MFA in NYC at the ICP-BARD masters in photographic studies. I worked at condense as an assistant to the editor for a year until I decided to Strat my freelance career in fashion and photography. I am currently working on my self portraits " A series of unfortunate fortunate events.
