I am currently a freelance photographer based in Southwest Florida represented by ZUMA Press. My background is in visual arts and marketing. For the past few years I have worked on editorial but I’m available for general news and documentary assignments. My personal photographic work concentrates on long-form documentaries covering race representation and migration. I am a member of the The Authority Collective, Colectivo Liminal, Fotógrafas Latam, and The Artful Activist.
