My roots are in the Hip Hop scene, that´s why I specialized in B-Boy/B-Girl photography. After organizing numerous events for the scene and working on two books about Hip Hop as editor/writer with New York’s legendary Hip Hop photographer Martha Cooper, I started working as a photographer in 2010.
Martha Cooper had just upgraded to a new camera and had given me her Nikon D70 with the words, “I think you could be a great photographer—go and do something with it!” So I went on a trip for six months writing a blog about Hip Hop culture in Mexico and Central America and learning how to shoot on the way.
Forever grateful that now I finally knew “what I wanted to be when I grew up,” I started shooting for Red Bull for whom, up to that point, I had been working as a writer, blogger, web editor and social media manager.
Today, I’m traveling the world shooting sports, culture, music and street art.
“I have the best job in the world! To be able to do what I love and what makes me the happiest, shooting and traveling is friggin’ awesome!”
