Having arrived in Toronto on a cold winter night, with nothing but $60 in my pocket, and no knowledge of English, my passion and perseverance soon saw me photographing the likes of Gwen Stefani, Pitbull, blink182 and soon… Charlie Puth.

I pour my heart and soul out on my work, and today, seeing my photos on magazine covers, and my clients on posters and billboards, I am grateful and proud of how far I have come. The angels I have met along the way have lent me their wings when I needed to fly, and have only helped and encouraged me to dream more and more everyday.

I obtained my Professional in Advertising degree from Jorge Tadeo Lozano University in Bogota, and am currently pursuing Photography and Public Relations certifications from Ryerson University and the University of Toronto. I know that this is just the beginning of something big, and I am glad to have you on this journey with me.
