About Me


Freelance Photogapher


I'm a freelance photographer and musician. I studied music and then ethnomusicology and am very interested getting to know as many different cultures and art forms as possible.
I currently live in Stockholm with my husband who is a composer on a fullbright grant with the Royal Conservaroty. We're making the best of our 10 months in Sweden by traveling as much as possible and I'm getting a wonderful opportunity to travel, meet people and take photos!


Gratitude and generosity. Music is medicine. Traveling is one of the best possible ways to amplify your perspective and really become the best person you can be as well as help others.
Treat others as you would like to be treated. As my grand father would say "No busques el pelo al huevo. "

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I led a group of 10 or so tourists through a cave in the rainforest in Thailand. Oh, and the cave was full or poisonous spiders and bats. We had to swim through parts of the cave by taking long breaths and going underwater in the complete dark.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love music and photography, languages, cooking, adventures, laughing, being goofy and being around good natured people.
