I spent my childhood between Argentina, Canada, and the US. Back then everyone thought I’d grow up to be an artist. But in an act of rebellion I got a degree in economics. And so for the next ten years I wondered what it was that I really should be doing with my life.
At 33 I picked up a camera and I was born.
I put my camera settings on manual and shot as much as possible. The camera started taking me places; I explored music scenes around Washington DC, traveled with bands, met tons of people, and got written up in the Washington Post.
Photography was the gateway to my life.
In the fall of 2009 I began to dream about making a photography book about the renowned Eighteenth Street Lounge. I poured my heart and soul into it and 2 years later, ESL: The Photo Book is still like a dream, but now it’s one I can hold in my hands.
