I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina but I grew up in Caracas, Venezuela where I attended most of my school years and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Pharmaceutical Sciences. Working in South America as a Pharmacist was fun and I loved it, but after moving to the States I was already starting to change my mind about many things, including my personal approach to restoring health and curing illness, so unfortunately Pharmacy was not a fulfilling path for me anymore.
I have always been a lover and venerator of art and all forms of self-expression, so when faced with the decision of a career change, I gave Photography a chance and I have not looked back since. I have a raw and genuine passion for capturing the world and its fascinating habitants through my lens and for telling stories with my images that will endure the passage of time.
I am a firm believer in the ideology that no matter who you are, your happiness lies in dedicating your work to the purpose of healing the world, and that’s why I am a Photographer. Photography is what keeps my world in orbit.
My influences include Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Doisneau. I prefer a style that is candid, elegant, and timeless and is guided by the belief that a photographer should transform the viewer into the original observer. My challenge in every assignment is to be able to capture not only a moment in time, but also the right emotion to make the viewer grasp the entire experience through just a simple glimpse.
But besides all these false idolatrous notions, I am a humble citizen of the universe, a world traveler, a Buddhist and a yogi, a bad cook but a fabulous dancer, a lover of physics, goats and fine scotch, a writer that is single by choice, but most importantly and first on my list of priorities, an inspirator and a seeker of truth.
