If there’s something I want you to know about me right away is that when I get a camera in my hands my world is transformed.
I was born in Santiago de Cuba, the second most important city of the island of Cuba. I studied Software Systems Engineering at Havana’s Polytechnic University, graduating in 1990 with the highest honors. In 1995 I moved to the USA. Since then, Miami became the place I call home.
While I have enjoyed for many years designing and programming software systems, I was fortunate to find early enough my life's passion and true calling: being a photographer, a world wanderer and an observer of the human experience. Exploring the full range of human emotions through the making of images is an exciting challenge that becomes very rewarding when light, moment and composition are aligned into a memorable image. My photography belongs to the streets of the world. I also feel very connected with the documentary style of image making. I'm a photographer because I like to motivate people to stop and think about our similarities as human beings emerging from our differences.
If you feel connected to the heart behind my work, I can’t wait to hear from you.
