I migrated to the U.S. with my family at the age of nine. The challenges of assimilating into two cultures helped shape my view of the world and inspired my curiosity about different cultures, peoples, and places. It is the endless search for genuine connection and discovery that fuels my passion for storytelling and creating visually and emotionally impactful photographs.
I first picked up a camera after graduating from college to document my travels and climbing adventures, which promptly led to my desire to use photography as the main avenue for expression and exploration in my life. As a result, the evolution of my work is diverse and wide-ranging in subject matter and genre. From adventure and lifestyle to street and portraiture, I hold a high standard for creating work that is unique, engaging, and raw.
More recently, my focus has been long term documentary projects that explore themes of cultural history, folklore and mythology, human rights, and conservation.
I am based between Western North Carolina and Colombia. Available for assignments & commissioned work worldwide.
