Instagram is actually how I got started in surf photography. I started on the app six months after it launched and posted a surf pic that got really popular. Then I noticed, after looking around a bit at what other surf photography there was out there on Instagram, I could do way better. And that has led me to where I am today.

With camera and spear gun in tow, I have been traversing the shores from Lima, Perú, south through the Atacama Desert of Chile, and continuing on towards Antarctica through my beloved Chile. The journey will culminate in Easter Island, ‘the navel of the world.’
Trinidad and Tobago is a twin island republic located in the southern reaches of the Caribbean Sea. The islands are home to people who are rich in culture and tradition. As a photographer, I hope to show the world what these islands have to offer.
