Career

Career

I'm fascinated by behaviors, both in people and animals. 
I've explored this curiosity from various angles; from a very early age I studied languages and cultures but this just created more thirst for understanding what I was discovering about humans. So I studied Psychology, obtaining 3 masters in mental health and geriatric psychology. Attempting to understand people's thirst for money and power I did a masters in business management, but that was a dead end. 

Then I met my partner in crime, mentor, and sometimes dad, Jose Alejandro. 

He introduced me to a world where behaviors were the most fascinating and  where the importance of human behavior became more clear to me, THE JUNGLE. 

I had been diving since I was 9 years old, and my mom's idea of fun always involved a parachute, sharks, or quad bikes. so dirt and nature had always been my second nature. However the jungle is just something else... Its the epitome of interesting behaviors and the best teacher for showing me how these behaviors I was so interested in where the same that were destroying my other passion, nature. 

So I grabbed my camera (well, I stole Jose Alejandro's) and I finally found my favorite way to look at the world; through the lens. And became very passionate of showing humans how beautiful nature is so that we learn  to protect it. 

Needles to say, as my family and friends would say, I continued collecting degrees (which is apparently my favorite hobby), and got certifications on both Environmental studies and Photography.
