35mm film/toy cam

While I spent most of my youth in the Bronx and Manhattan, summers belonged to Puerto Rico where I stayed in the countryside, close to El Yunque rainforest. Those days were the most memorable of my childhood and inspired me to travel, work for the environment, and become a documentarian. 

After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, I reported for New York Newsday, covering stories in Manhattan and the Bronx. The desire to work in natural history programming led me to the PBS series Nature where I worked as a producer and editor on shows that received Peabody and Emmy awards. Today I specialize in multimedia – writing, producing, editing and photographing. Clients include Nature/PBS, The World Science Festival, Dedicated Lane Productions, Open Boat Films and more.

From subterranean Manhattan landscapes to Mayan ruins in a Guatemalan forest, I am passionate about exploring the wild and rarely seen. My images have appeared in The New York Times, The Brooklyn Paper, Metro Parent magazine, Transportation Alternatives magazine and more. I have also shot for other mediums such as book covers, movie posters, and a live panel discussion on Women and Street Art at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
