About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find a good future for our recycle waste. Building schools around the world using ECO-construction systems. Hopping that all the children's in the world will have access to a good orientated education, a generation able to build a better balanced planet.

ABOUT ME

Since an early age, I have showed a strong capacity for understanding the world through visual sources; I have been consciously seeking inspiration from human surroundings in a creative manner, developing a conceptual art work which allows me to engage with nature. Since moving to London, I have become even more aware about the reality of the world in which we live, and have certainly gained confidence in following my ambitions. By my family and friends I'm always remembered by my great photographs. They know wherever I go my camera is always with me.

PHILOSOPHY

EVERYTHING WORTH IF THE SAUL IS NOT SMALL.

Fernando Pessoa

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have hope for better world and that is how participate day by day, building a strong being, an example of goodness for the young generations. I believe that we have already proved that we are shaping a much more health and happy world. By not following and accepting wars made by religious fanatics and corrupts politicians. We only need a chance to prove that only need love to live in peace on a great community!!! The world governments with their control and abuse of power are where the example starts, we could do better with out them, we may live in a world out of so many social problems.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I'm using the CauchSurfing website to develop mt currently Photographic Practice, where I'm travelling in the United Kingdom. It consist in contacting and meeting people on CS, travelling to them and with them, I have to say the experience has been positive so far and I believe the outcome as well. These practice demonstrate my interests in human nature, geography and photography. Thank you for all have been participate and supporting my project. A public exhibition will be open on the 8th June 2013, this day is specially open for family and friends. Please contact me for details.

Interests

I'm interest in social photography. It became an obsession, of which I cannot step away from any more. In my studies I'm looking to establish a connection between contemporary photographic images (portraying the modern society), and deeply study the present communities in connection with urban and suburban environment. During my current study; I'm focusing on the main cities in the United Kingdom, exploring the beautiful British country and nation. My approach is to immerse myself, with a photographic camera, into a social experience. Places and Memory are the themes I am intent on exploring, bringing together a series of images, that are a part of the human sociology.

Music, Movies & Books

I love photography books or anythings in connection with that, cinema also always looking for any new move from the Mexican director Alexandro Gonzalez.... Music I love lots of music from jazz to techno as long it is good played, I'm up for that.
