Born in the late 80s, I was raised between metropolitan city of San Juan and the green mountains of Puerto Rico. In 2009 I took a one way plane to California to complete my bachelors. After six years in the Golden State I relocated from Los Angeles to Puerto Rico, following my heart to focus on long-term projects about the underrepresented area of the Caribbean. 

Being from a place that is culturally Latin American, but politically an unincorporated territory of the United States, has shaped my interest as a documentary photographer to explore the topics of community and identity. My work has appeared in The New York Times, CNN, The Washington Post, Bloomberg, NPR, and Smithsonian Magazine, among others. I am available for assignments.

Photography is a dialogue.
I choose the subtle moments because it is there – in the quietness of time – where a story is also told.
