I’m a visual storyteller based in Mexico City.


Selected Work


I’m a freelance visual storyteller based in Mexico City, the co-founder of the creative platform On the Road Media and the content producer at the digital agency Eco Agency and a member of the global creative think tank Sense Network.

I’ve collaborated with international media outlets like National Geographic, MSNBC and Al Jazeera and international organizations including the United Nations. I contributed photographic work to the documentary “Los Comandos,” which narrates the story of a group of young volunteer rescuers in San Salvador. The documentary was shortlisted for the Oscars 2019. My still photographs have been published by media outlets including Time Magazine, The Guardian and El País.

My documentary work is mainly focused on women and LGBTI rights, indigenous peoples, environment and migration and has taken me to places including Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Argentina, Chile, India, Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Germany. As an educator, I’ve facilitated workshops about visual storytelling for aspiring storytellers, organizations and corporations.
