460 years after the discovery of the Galapagos Islands, I was born. My mother is a multilingual naturalist guide on the Galapagos National Park; my father is a former soldier, police officer, and a retired U.S.A Embassy engineer. An unusual combination from both made me who I am today; a visual artist, technology fan and vegetarian by birth. 

During my childhood, on the Island of Santa Cruz, I developed a strong connection with the natural world that surrounded me and also learned the importance of conservation. In 2008 I left the archipelago to pursue another of my passions: art. I graduated from the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Ecuador with a bachelor's degree in Visual Artist. During my studies, I took several courses in Ecuador and Europe, had 10 collective and solo art exhibitions, and had various recognitions. In my thesis artwork, “El Ser y la Máquina” I combined art with philosophy and technology. The artwork earned several local and international recognitions. 

In 2018 I returned to the Galápagos Islands to make my first significant contribution to the conservation of the enchanted islands; a multimedia-production volunteering at the Charles Darwin Research Station. Nowadays, I still work as a consultant to the Station. In July 2018, I became part of the Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic family. Working for LEX/NG I can be closer to nature and, through my work as a Video Chronicler, I can showcase the uniqueness of my home-islands and why it is so important to conserve and protect them. 

Besides, I'm the co-founder of the Galapagos Workshop; a multimedia studio, based in Santa Cruz, focused on avant-garde design. In the future, I plan to open an art residency in the Galápagos where writers, artists, musicians, photographer, and filmmakers from all over the world can come to get inspired in these pristine and extraordinary islands.
