About Me

My biggest interests and influences lie within music, cinema, and film photography. Being native in both Spanish and English has given me the opportunity to explore a variety of social circles. The experiences from these circles have given me insight into different points of view and ways of thinking that are constantly being incorporated into my work. 


My life in the US as well as my frequent visits to Mexico and Germany are what helped me further my photography and collage work. The featured collages serve to represent the emotional fantasies that revolve around each incorporated photo. I have created and/or photographed all elements within each work in order to fully make it a full creation of my own.
