Why Focus on Photography

A Side Quest in Storytelling THE CELEBRATION I recently realized why my love for photography has exponentially grown in the past years, and why I’ve focused to sharpen the skill. As a storyteller, I truly appreciate what one can see in a single photograph, the little nuances that help tell a novel through a singleContinue reading “Why Focus on Photography”

The Magical Places

Pray for Those At different stages in our lives magical places appear that we need more than ever before. Your mother’s lap as a small child, your first bedroom filled with imagination, a friend’s basement during troubling teen years, a corner of your college campus to hide away, a new city as you get closeContinue reading “The Magical Places”

ICP Exposure, Light, and Composition

Never Not Learning I recently took a course at the International Center of Photography (ICP) to more deeply explore exposure, light, and composition. This was my first time taking a class at ICP, and really my first classroom experience for photography in general. I would strongly endorse all learning opportunities—always will—and this is no exception.Continue reading “ICP Exposure, Light, and Composition”

Las Tetas de Cayey

Exploring Puerto Rico It’s no surprise I’ve taken a liking to Puerto Rico. I mean, I have always been attracted to beaches, palm trees, and tropical weather. I had two-out-of-three while living out in Los Angeles, and again two-out-of-three while living back home in Argentina. But, in heavenly Puerto Rico, I have three-of-three, plus aContinue reading “Las Tetas de Cayey”

NY Comic Con, Here I Come

Nerd Heaven: Year Two With so much joy pulsating through my fingers I type the following sentence: my tickets are purchased, and again, I am going to NY Comic Con! [insert three nerd-glasses emoji here] Moving to the greatest city in the world has its perks. Not only do I get to live in theContinue reading “NY Comic Con, Here I Come”

Keep Being Proud

Acceptance is A Must After my second year attending the New York PRIDE March, I consider where I might have last witnessed a more open and joyful environment. Proud. Maybe it was watching legions at the 2017 Women’s March after our so-called “President” took office, maybe it was a nerd-filled theater antsy for the newestContinue reading “Keep Being Proud”

Mi Amor, Boca Juniors

Remembering The Words For Love While working on my newest story, I found myself having issues putting into words my love for the most beautiful sport in the world: el fútbol. I was mostly having issues expressing what football means to me—the feeling of being on the pitch, of having the ball at my feet, orContinue reading “Mi Amor, Boca Juniors”

My Cultural Identity Look

Be culture, love your culture, keep your culture. Culture. History. Identity. Heritage. Blood. Lineage. Ancestry. Roots. Birthright… I could keep going on-and-on-and-on with different names for the same concept. I could go on-and-on-and-on about what it means to me and how I show mine… well, actually, I will. Because it took too many years forContinue reading “My Cultural Identity Look”

The 22 Push-Up Challenge

To raise awareness about veteran suicide rates. I usually don’t take up challenges like this one, or even causes like these, but the 22 Push-Up Challenge—to raise awareness about veteran suicide rates—resonates with me on a different level. It’s hard for me to put into words my feelings towards suicide, once I start to thinkContinue reading “The 22 Push-Up Challenge”

Monsters in New York City

Look to the monsters around you to fuel your creativity. The monsters can surround you or hide deep inside. They can be the height of the tallest mountain or the little bug that keeps buzzing by your ear, keeping you awake. The monsters can be in your closet at night on just in your head,Continue reading “Monsters in New York City”
