l was born in 1987 in a small cowboy town, Cuauhtemoc, in northern Mexico, but migrated to the US with my family at a young age. Having grown up both in a Mexican family and an American environment my interest in identity, migration and world affairs came naturally. Throughout my life, I have always been fascinated by art and the way artists portray the human condition. This fascination together with my upbringing instilled in me a sense of curiosity about cultures around the world. Eventually I began traveling with a journalist, Magdalena Vaculciakova, and an encounter with a National Geographic photographer changed my perspective on photography.
Iv’e been traveling around the globe as a photojournalist for the past two years working on global issues, such as migration, human rights, and development. I have been published internationally in various media outlets, such as national media in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Amongst the topics I have covered are; refugees in Greece, former guerrilla members in Colombia, challenges of nowadays Senegal, change in Myanmar.
