I like taking pictures of people. I think that there is an indefinable energy that happens when a person gets in front of a camera, and I feel a sense of liberation when I am behind it.

I started taking photography classes when I was eighteen years old and was fascinated with the darkroom being able to see how the image slowly appeared in the paper. Taking pictures became natural but I was not focused on photography until years later. As time took its course, I studied marketing at the Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores, in Monterrey, Mexico. Although I enjoyed studying marketing I felt there was a void in my life and I decided to do what really makes me happy and that is when I came to San Francisco to study Masters in Photography at The Academy of Art.
