I'm a Director of Photography, mostly shooting commercials. I love what I do and photography is just an extension of that. I carry my camera wherever I go. Most of my work derives from this.

I was born in Miami, FL by chance but lived in Mexico and Ecuador all my childhood. Moved to the US to go to college and stayed here. I've also lived in Buenos Aires and Madrid.

    "I really enjoy your work and unlike many photographer they like to get rid of the shadow but not you. People always forget, like the great architect Philip Johnson ever said "we always forget that it's not just the light that make a picture, but the shadow is equally important if not more important." Keep up with your good work."
