Bio summary

Photographer and Visual Artist.

After studying Advertising, I gained significant experience in agencies and artistic workshops, which allowed me to develop entrepreneurial projects: Sala Caja Blanca art gallery, Bellavista, Santiago 1996 and, as of 2003, Genérica Publicidad advertising agency. However, starting in 2009, I chose to dedicate myself completely to my passion, photography and art.

From 2009 until today I have worked in productions for publishers and companies, both in Chile and abroad, and at the same time I make visual art in my workshop in Santiago.
