I’m a photographer and storyteller based out of Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay area. I was born in Mexico and was raised in Los Angeles. Both my parents are photographers so I was around cameras from a very early age. Photography is the tool that allows me to connect to the world. I believe that each person and moment has an essence that can be captured through a camera. I'm passionate in my work about profiling the edges of culture. Through some of my portraits, I unveil stories of those who live in the shadows of our society. Meanwhile, embedded on tour, I have the privilege of revealing intimate moments in the lives of some of the most visible musical performers of today. I typically carry a camera wherever I go, but when I’m not shooting, you can find me reading, watching documentaries and spending time with my loved ones.
