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 she sees. Those who view an image see things they haven't noticed before.
I think photography can be a tool that empowers people to ask and hear another person's story, and tell that story to the wider world.
