I was born and raised in Mexico City, where I worked in the entertainment industry. Learning English in the US as an adult gave me a unique perspective on the language’s nuances. I employ video, performance and photography in the way the mass media does, using humor and wit to delve into issues of immigration, cultural stereotypes, identity and being bilingual. As both an insider and outsider, I look at the machinations of American culture. The Museum Of Latin American Art, Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery and Torrance Art Museum have exhibited my work.
I received my MA from CSU Northridge in 2013, and a Master of Fine Arts at CSU Long Beach in 2017. I teach photography at CSU Northridge, Moorpark Community College and Citrus College.
