I was born in Caracas-Venezuela in 1968. Started my professional career as an industrial engineer before reinventing myself as a photojournalist in 2000.
I became a photographer motivated by the need to explore my surroundings, the life and culture of people with empathy and respect leaving a record, a document, tell a story.
I worked until 2007 in the Associated Press. Awarded Picture of The Year 2007 and Atlanta Photojournalist 2008 for pics during confrontations inside Universidad Central de Venezuela.
I currently work as a freelance photographer based in Malaga, Spain.
