About the Artist:

I grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina where I studied architecture at the University of Buenos Aires, and later immigrated to the US where I received a degree in graphic design and marketing communications from UCLA. I went to work for international advertising agencies in Los Angeles and San Francisco as an art director and was involved in major ad campaigns for both print and television for several years. Inspired by photography and cinematography while art directing, I went back to UCLA to study film and simultaneously acquired a degree at the Los Angeles Film School. I wrote, produced and directed short films. Later I went to study photography with some of the world's finest. I have been exhibiting my fine art, documentary, and portrait photography in galleries and juried shows in the US and in Europe. I work as a portrait and lifestyle photographer for private, editorial and corporate clients. "Photography for me is the culmination of all my experiences in architecture, design, film and art direction. It all comes together and this is where my passion is".
