Dallas, TX, USA
I'm a bicultural Chilean-American visual journalist and narrative writer raised in the United States. I've lived and traveled extensively in Chile and spent time living in Mexico. I'm currently based in Waco, Texas.
I've been a staff member of Foundry Photojournalism Workshops since the first one in Mexico City, 2008.
My career started when I moved to Chile and worked as a travel photographer in Patagonia. I've worked for Getty Images, dpa Deutsche Presse-Agentur, the Hartford Courant, Delta Air Lines' SKY and Korean Air's Morning Calm magazines. I've also been published in several Chilean publications including La Tercera, Las Ultimas Noticias, and Terra.cl. In 2010, I worked for the government of Chile's press office as assistant to Hugo Infante and photographed during the rescue of the 33 trapped miners.
In 2012, I attended the XXV Eddie Adams Workshop.
