Born and raised in Venezuela, I have lived in France since 2003. I first came to Paris inspired by images from films of the French New Wave, but since I could not find them, I started creating my own images. 
Photography started to be a real passion for me from 2010 onwards. A 365 project and many self-portraits followed. The self-portraits, in particular, allowed me to explore the possibilities of photography in a comfortable and reassuring environment.
In 2012, I decided to test my way of seeing in Lifestyle photography. As IP-Photographe, I've learned about traditions and costumes I did not know about, and this curious and detached disposition has allowed me to capture fleeting moments in the lives of my clients. 
Following my incursions into lifestyle photography, I stopped doing significant personal work. All changed in 2020. During the lockdown, I joined the 100daysoflumière challenge started by Caro Cuinet Wellings. It was a revelation for me. My personal photography took priority, especially my self-portraits. 
I also followed the challenge in 2021 and 2022. I won 3rd, 1st, and 2nd place in the 100daysoflumière contests in 2020, 2021, and 2022 respectively.
I have also won 3rd place in the self-portrait category of the 2021 IPA photography competition and an honorable mention in the 2021 Julia Margaret Cameron Award
In 2022, Caro Cuinet Wellings invited me, along with five other photographers from the 100daysoflumière challenge, to participate in her book Voir la lumière. It features a selection of my self-portraits and my testimony explaining my process.
My first series of self-portraits was exhibited in 2012 in Paris as part of the group exhibition 20 ans, beaucoup, passionnément… 
My self-portrait Home was exhibited in 2022 as part of the 6th Barcelona Foto Biennale.
I am also a technical writer and I continue to search for images in films.
