As a working photographer and artist, I want to incorporate the splendor of imagination with technique within the fabric of everyday life and share my skills with all students ready to open their minds and allow them to find their creative outlets.


I picked up the camera at the age of ten. An immigrant from Colombia, South America, I felt lost in the English world, art was my door to acceptance, my voice to be heard. Trying to get accepted as an artist is a challenge that I face every day while remaining true to my soul.


I received my MFA in Photography from the Academy of Art University a BA in Film and Cinema from San Francisco State University and now, teaching my passion, I hopes to help others find their voice.
