• About •
I got my career start in 2003 as a graphic designer / photo retoucher correcting and editing various types of photography. I spent some time working in information technology for the government and later in graphic design for school textbooks and testing educational software. I did all of this while moonlighting as an actor and model. I decided to combine my passion for the digital arts, performing / entertainment, and my knowledge of post production / retouching and go into photography in 2006.
I have been working full time as a freelance photographer and photo editor since 2008 producing high quality headshots for Los Angeles actors and editorial photography for printed publications, catalogs, and celebrities.
• Fun Facts •
I am married to actor and singer Josh Keaton. My parents are Cuban & Uruguayan of Galician, Scottish, French, Spanish, French Basque, and Sicilian Decent. I speak fluent in Spanish with a Cuban accent (sorry dad). I love doing Yoga. I'm a huge history buff. I did the S.E. beauty pageant circuit from 1992-1997 so I could buy my first car. I play video games... a lot. I love cooking ethnic cuisine. I did not like being a model, but I loved the business. I enjoy performing sketch comedy / improv and I have an crazy sense of humor, so may never know when I am joking.
