Thanks for visiting my site! I hope you've browsed around to check out my photos! A little bit about me... I am a native New Yorker and a Spanish Teacher at St John's Preparatory School in Astoria, New York. I have a Master of Arts degree in Spanish Language and Literature from Iona College, with continued studies at the Universidad de Salamanca, Spain. I am also on the team at JP Teaches Photo, a photography education company in New York City.
I began to pursue my passion for photography in 2010. Teaching (for 20+ years) allows me the time to pursue my other dreams; and so I began a new career as a Freelance Photographer after winning a Photo Pass for the historic NYCFC home opener at Yankee Stadium. I specialize in event and sports photography. I am very passionate about soccer, am the Vice President of the Real Madrid Supporters Club of New York City, and a founding member of New York City FC.
I also enjoy traveling all over the world. Each year I lead educational tours abroad with my students. The greatest joy I have as I teacher is watching their faces light up when they see the classroom come to life in the places we visit. I am lucky to capture those moments with my camera as well!
