I am a freelance photographer from Caracas, Venezuela, now based in Miami, USA.

I'm a person of great curiosity and sensitivity to everyday stories. As a woman, a mom, and a Venezuelan experienced the situation of my country in recent years, I'm interested in social issues.

I studied Interior Design, and I practiced it for years, but I have always stayed close to photography. I come from a family of photographers, mainly dedicated to portraiture, so the photographic expression is something familiar to me.

For around ten years, I have been doing documentary photography, and in the last seven years, I have been documenting my family's life, practically every day.

For years I had my eyes set on photojournalism, but without regrets, I was fully committed to my daughter's upbringing during her first years. It was not until the beginning of 2019 that I had the opportunity to go out and document stories of others and spot news as well. On second thought, I think it was at that moment that I dared to assume that this is what I want to do and went out to do it. I am in full training and eager to learn and grow every day to be able to continue to witness what happens in our environment. I know that the way to help those in need is by creating awareness and try to deliver a message to those who can help them. And the medium I know is through photography, which I consider an all-powerful language. I also interest in video and writing; I enjoy telling the story around my photos and even around my daily life.


Since February 2019, I have been working as a contributor photojournalist for Getty Images, Agence France-Presse (AFP), Reuters, Bloomberg, Anadolu Agency, BBC Mundo and others.
