I am originally from Guatemala. I believe my love of photography & cinema came from a longing to fit in as a newly implanted immigrant in America. I could always melt away into a movie or magazine.  It has always been an escape that allows me to experience life through the eyes of others.  I had done this since arriving in the U.S. as a little girl and continued to do so while bouncing around as a military spouse in multiple new places that I had to make a home. Trying to understand new surroundings and new people constantly has given me the ability to see life in a very unique way. 

Being an immigrant means standing out when you rather not. Being noticed when all you want is to be accepted. Visual arts allow me that temporary space. This is why I love photography and filmmaking and why it is my goal daily to have us connect and trust each other as a result of visual storytelling.
