I was born in Manchester, UK (1980) and grew up in Mexico City where I lived permanently until 2008. I graduated with a BA in Fine Art at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in 2006 and have taken part in several photography shows in Mexico, USA, the UK and France. My main interests focus on themes of immigration, memory, belonging and cultural dislocation.


In 2008 I was part of the project led by Redeye in association with Impressions Gallery titled Lost in Transit, culminating in a group exhibition held at Impressions Gallery (Bradford).


Sponsored by The University of Nottingham in 2013 I undertook the  photographic project Uncovering the Invisible alongside photographer Pablo Allison, portraying Latin Americans living in the United Kingdom. Such project was later exhibited at the Instituto Cervantes (Manchester), City Hall (London) to coincide with the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil, it was included in Doh Mix Meh Up: Diaspora and Identity in Art organised by the Oxford Diasporas Programme (Unversity of Oxford), curated by Sunil Shah, the University of Exeter and at UNESCO during the Mobile Learning Week 2015 (Paris). The project was exhibited at Lakeside Arts (Nottingham)  from 30th July to 11th September 2016. 


Receiving funding from the Embassy of Spain and the University of London, I exhibited the project Mexicans/UK, in collaboration with Pablo Allison, during the Being Human Festival 2015 (London).
