Some of my past lives: I worked as a stockbroker in São Paulo, Brazil for approximately six years. When I moved to New York City in 1988 I changed careers and returned to school. I studied at the School of Visual Arts for one year and finished my Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Florida International University.

I received a full scholarship from the University of Miami to do my Masters of Fine Arts in Photography. The best 3 years I have ever had! Just imagine: 3 years working on photography projects. What a luxury! ♥

During that time I taught at the university and began to exhibit my work. Upon completing school I continued to teach as an adjunct and to photograph for different corporations.

I taught at the University of Miami, Art Institute, Barry University among other places.

These are some of the places that showed my work:

Naples Museum of Art in Naples, Fl

Museum of Latin America, Long Beach, Ca.

Dot Fiftyone, Miami, Fl

Bernice Steinbaum Gallery, Miami

Michael C Rockefeller Arts Gallery Fredonia NY

These are some of the grants that I received:

Creative Capital, New York Foundation, State of Florida Individual Artist Fellowship, Artist Enhancement Grant Miami-Dade County, Florida Breast Cancer Coalition, Travel Grant to Washington DC
