Born in Montevideo Uruguay, life as I now know it hardly began until I set foot ashore the beautiful Miami Beach a mere five years ago. Up until that point, I had only prepared myself for the great journey that would lie ahead. In doing so, I studied photography at the Bellas Artes University, and also cosmetology and makeup art at the University of Trabajo of Uruguay. As my life unfolded, and I found myself wrapped up in the diverse nature of this dynamic city, I passionately began to indulge in this great culture of art; the art of fashion, the art of photography... but most of all, the art of beauty. Since my arrival to USA, I have been honored to have the opportunity to experience the multi-facets of this fast changing industry. These experiences include working in digital photography, photo manipulation, photo retouch, conceptualization, art direction, set design, styling, and grooming. My diverse adeptness has allowed me to freely explore the many avenues of this wide-ranging life, and in doing so; I have continued to evolve in my ability to self-produce all aspects of my artwork. In photography, there lies my greatest passion and vision. All other entities that encompass my self as an artist are necessary only in order to ensure the continued progression and elevation of my work. With the world as my canvas, my most supreme creations have come from those things that seemed to be nothing for the ordinary eye, but to me, were things of art, hoping to be captured, waiting to be exploited for the beauty that lied within. Along my career I had the opportunity to direct and photograph advertising images for Signatures such as Absolutely Suitable Miami, Ricardo Zuccolini Designs, cover cd for artists like Lisa M, and Hey Ladies, as well as imagery for the image bank Win Initiative. Also have had the pleasure of being the official photographer of Super Model of Peru, and Super Model of Venezuela (starting this year) for Super Model of the World by Ford Models NY. I have recently moved to New York City to continue evolving on my art skills as a photographer, while giving my career a new place for inspiration, because as I said before, my work is art, and the world is my canvas... hence, the possibilities are endless.
