I love people + art + great ideas.
I like to describe myself as a creative and compelling thinker- ideas keep me up and keep me going. I like to dance between tradition and the future; the modern and the postmodern; reality and fiction; stillness and motion; silence and noise. I am opinionated yet reserved; intellectual yet ignorant; extroverted yet introverted; and independent yet inter-dependent.
All in all, I am a work in progress. As I grow and learn, I discover…that I got a lot to unlearn, learn, and relearn.
I am a multitasker and multi project launcher by nature. It is what I know since I was 11 years old and started my first business: a typical lemonade stand. My family and close friends have conspired to support me in my adventures and that’s all I need. As an avid reader and lifetime student, I have managed to get several degrees and diplomas along the journey: BS. in Management Science at the Louisiana Business School; Masters of Arts in Theology, Arts and Culture from Fuller in California; a Life Coaching certification by the International Coach Academy in Australia; Italian diploma from the Istituto Italiano in Florence; Diplomado in Artistic Contemporary Photography by NODE Center for Curatorial Studies. Additionally, I’ve had the opportunity to learn a lot from great modern photography masters such as Joe McNally, Jeremy Cowart, and Brooke Shaden.
“He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”
— St. Francis of Assisi
I consider myself an observer and contemplator, fascinated by life, nature, people, stories, and pretty much anything. The words of Einstein ring true:
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” -Alberto Einstein
