Raised in South Florida, I began photography at the age of 16 , when I was enrolled in McFatter Technical Magnet School's Commercial Photography course. Walking out with a profound passion, I decided to peruse it further in University. Graduating with a BFA in Photography at Barry University, Miami, Florida  in 2018, I have been fortunate to have underwent several projects, collaborations, and publications since.

With a blend of fashion meets whimsical, dandy meets surrealism, and from real estate photography to green screen compositing, I am known for my versatile portfolio (ranging from corporate to creative), as well as other worldly (sometimes fantasy-like) visuals and esoteric essence.

Publications: Ocean Drive Magazine, Fast Company, Haute Living, HOLA!USA, CHIC Miami Magazine, Moevir Paris Fashion Magazine, Elléments Magazine, Picton Magazine, The Model Magazine, and Elegant Magazine.

Clients: iHeart Media, Cirque Du Soleil, Venü Magazine, Anouk Wipprecht FashionTech, Ballet in The City.

I am a firm believer about the importance of positive energy of the production of the photoshoot . Along with lighting, composition, conceptualizing and art direction, I am a team player that puts the project essence first before anything else.
