Where are you based?

Ecuador.

What do you do?

I like to consider myself an experiencer because what I like
the most in life is living any kind of opportunity that’s presented to me. I share all of my adventures through photography, so yes, I am also a photographer. There are many things in life I really enjoy doing so for me it’s impossible to do only one.

 

How did you get started?

When I was 18 I moved to the states for a year and my parents
were always asking me to send them pictures of everything I did so I started taking pictures. I noticed that they could experience through my photographs, that they could live a little of my everyday experiences, so that’s how it all started, as a way of sharing with my family.

I’ve been very lucky in having the life I’ve had and I am grateful
for the opportunities that life has presented to me and photography is my way of showing that gratitude to the world. Is how I share those moments and places that I get to experience.

 

What do you love most about what you do?

The story behind every adventure or job opportunity. I try
to learn from every single experience. Sometimes I get to meet amazing people with completely different ways of thinking that open my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities, or sometimes is a place that I visit that teaches me something about myself,
either way, learning and growing is part of each experience.

 

Where do you get your inspiration?

For me inspiration comes and goes, it can come unannounced
or sometimes I have to jump started by different mind exercises, but what works best is living in the present, trying to look at everything with brand new eyes even dough you have lived in the same place for years, doing things that you have never done before,
asking meaningful questions, getting to know people and their different views in life, anything that nourishes my train of thought will bring inspiration to my soul. All comes down in getting out of your comfort zone.

 

What are some tips for other people to follow your path?

Follow your dreams and be true to yourself. I think this is
the hardest thing to do because life will throw distractions and different paths at you, so you have to always keep in mind what makes you truly happy and what you really want. Deep down we all know what’s the best for us, so follow that, do not settle for less.

 

Any favorite books, songs, podcasts, shows?

The Invention of Nature / Andrea Wolf
Life in the Woods / Henry. D Thoreau

 

What’s identity to you?

Identity for me is the choices you make throughout your life. No matter
good or bad (preferably good ), each action you take is your personal decision towards defining that true self. I believe it’s a mix of intuition, courage, dreams, knowledge and life experiences that in the end will define your true sense of identity.
