I am a veterinarian, originally from Costa Rica, currently living in Santa Clara, California since 1996. After all these years, I am still and always will be captivated by the natural beauty of this Golden State.

In 2003, while working with The Nature Conservancy in Costa Rica, my close encounters with nature were responsible for a sudden powerful interest in photography. We were passionately seeking to protect the jewels of nature, and I wanted to share that with my family and friends. I found that one of the best ways to do it was through images.

Back then, I was using the DSC P70, 3.2 Mp camera from Sony that my wife gave me. Since then, my love for the art (and equipment) of photography has evolved, and I have found that it has improved my quality of life tremendously. Thanks to this hobby, I see the world with different eyes.
