I am currently a Portrait, Sports, Fine Art and Event Photographer based in Lake Forest, IL

I began doing school photography for Lifetouch in 2018, and have been shooting Sports, Senior Portraits, Commencements, etc. I also regularly assist as a second shooter and book designer at Joel Schachtel Photography (in Highland Park, IL).

I am currently a game photographer for The Windy City Bulls (the "G" league team of the Chicago Bulls), and recently co-photographed the 2019 American Medical Association's 4-day Conference at the Hyatt Regency, where I did candids, the delegate portraits, and all of the group photos.

I am a member of The Garden Photographic Society (Chicago Botanic Garden), where my photographs have won Best of Show, Award and Honorable Mention. I'm also a member of The Imagemakers Photography Workshop (Northbrook, IL). 

 Some of my photos were recently on display at The Chicago Botanic Garden’s “Nature in View” photography show from April 6-28, 2019 (my second year). My Fine Art photos were recently on sale at Curt's Cafe in Evanston, IL (a non-profit café supporting at-risk youth).

I have been a volunteer photographer for District 67 Schools, The Cub Scouts of America, The Lake Forest/Lake Bluff History Museum, and The Gorton Center. I was born in Havana, Cuba.
