SHORT BIO

Born in Lima - Peru and currently based in New York, I'm a researcher and multimedia artist using different technology to create images and stories.

Using photography as my initial medium, I like to explore the possibilities of reality and surrealism to create what I call “Impossible stories”.

I’m a graduate of the Tisch School of the Arts @ New York University and I have presented projects at Viacom and Microsoft. Currently, I’m an Adobe Creative Resident.
