I am a visual journalist from Bogotá, Colombia, who has been living in the U.S. for the past seven years.
In 2012 I graduated from Duke University where I majored in cultural anthropology, and four years later I got a master's in Media and Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
I'm currently based in Miami working as a video journalist for Univision Noticias. In my day to day work I produce visual content individually and as part of large teams. I'm involved in all aspects of visual production–from the research stages to the most intricate details of editing and post-production.
Most of the stories I work on deal with questions of migration and human mobility– topics that interest me profoundly.
