I was born in Los Angeles and raised by a Colombian mother and an Italian father who was born and raised in Mexico City. I grew up speaking Spanish as my first language and learned English when I eventually had to get into pre-school. I enjoy languages and now speak about 5 fluently, among which are: Spanish and English (obviously) French, Italian, and my newest one, Portuguese.
I am about to graduate from NYU with Honors in Journalism and Comparative Literature this May. I am starting a travel show/ company called Indefinite Transit, which is for locals and travelers alike, looking for what is cool, new, and unusual to do. We address themes like: food, art, culture, adventure, and a twist of fashion, for people with champagne taste on a beer budget, with me as the host. We launch on May 18th, 2011. Visit the site at http://www.IndefiniteTransit.com and follow us @IndefTransit.
I love to photograph great street style and architecture, which brings me to my next passion—the camera lens. Don’t get me wrong, I love to be in front of the camera, but where I really shine, is behind it. I have been a classically trained B&W photographer for the past six years of my life. I work both in analogue and digital, but have a particular fascination with the darkroom. I hope to also include some of my work, here on this blog, when appropriate.
Lastly, I am always in need of an adventure — I love sharing, writing, photographing my experiences.
– Let’s see how we may work together:
