CONTRIBUTER FOR /
The New York Times
Los Angeles Times
I am a freelance multimedia journalist currently based in Caracas, Venezuela.
My work focuses on social conflict and youth culture. It has been featured in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and The Intercept, among others. I am also a frequent contributor at Bloomberg and Reuters. Ranging from long-form and authorial work to breaking news, my work seeks a balance between what works for traditional media and new angles and aesthetics.
I have a background in traditional investigative journalism, earned through a Master's Degree in Journalism from Columbia University in the city of New York, where I was a fellow at the Global Migration Program. My Master's Project, The Fear of The Others, a photographic essay about youth and gang violence in Long Island, earned Honors and was published by The Intercept. On that same year I attended New York Times Student Journalism Institute as a photojournalist and earned an honorable mention for my work. You can expect journalistic rigor in my work, specially in long-term projects: I heavily research and source the stories that I cover.
I was trained in hostile environment medical response by RISC and updated my hostile environment training in 2019 through a 5-day intensive HEFAT course.
In 2017 I received Ian Parry's Highly Commended Award and was named one of Time's 34 "Female Photographers to Follow From Around the World”. The next year, I attended the Eddie Adams Workshop, where I received the Nikon Award. On that same year, my work was exhibited in City Hall, London, as part of a collective exhibition.
I’m a proud member of Women Photograph and a recent fellow at the Heinrich Böll Foundation, which funded a reporting project in North Africa to explore the migrant crisis. I am currently working on a project in Venezuela as part of the 2019 Reuters Photojournalism Grant.
