I was born in the U.S., raised in Mexico, and am currently living in Arlington, Virginia. I lived in Japan for a year, studying the language and washing dishes to make ends meet. I've also lived in Honduras and in the Sultanate of Oman, and traveled throughout Europe, Central America, Asia, and the Middle East.
I believe photography is a vehicle that brings people closer to one another. A photographer is able to show the others the world through her eyes. Viewers are able to see things they have never noticed before.
My hope is that photography can help different people around the world understand one another, if only for a moment at a time.
