About / Contact

I’m a freelance narrative and visual journalist, born in Chile and raised in the United States. I’ve lived and traveled extensively in Chile and have spent time living in Mexico. I work at Baylor University as a Multimedia Specialist producing videos and stills for their Marketing and Communications Division. I’m currently based in Waco, Texas.

I worked as the Communications Director for The Alexia Foundation for World Peace during 2015. I’ve worked as a staff member of Foundry Photojournalism Workshops since the first workshop in Mexico City in 2008.

During graduate school at the University of North Texas, I worked under the mentorship of Thorne Anderson as his graduate assistant. After graduation, I’ve worked as assistant instructor for the Heart of Mexico international journalism study abroad class, serving as visuals instructor, web designer, content editor and translator.

My career started when I moved to Chile and worked as a photographer in Patagonia. Editorial and news clients include Getty Images, Hartford Courant, German Press Agency dpa, La Tercera (Chile), Las Ultimas Noticias (Chile), Delta Air Lines’ SKY and Korean Air’s Morning Calm magazines. In 2010, I worked for the government of Chile’s press office as assistant to Hugo Infante and photographed the rescue of the 33 miners.

In 2012, I attended the XXV Eddie Adams Workshop.

I received a Bachelors in Fine Arts in Photography from the University of Connecticut (2004) and a Masters in Journalism from the University of North Texas (2013).

I speak English and Spanish fluently.
