I was born in Barranquilla, Colombia. At age 14 I moved with my family to the United States. When I met my husband 22 years ago I couldn’t swim and was afraid to walk down a dock. My husband was an ocean enthusiast so I gradually acclimated. My Open Water Certification was issued by NAUI in 1993. I still felt a lot of trepidation diving until I got my camera.

I shoot an Olympus PL5 in an Olympus housing paired with INON Z240 strobes. My interests are both wide angle and macro with both 8mm and 60mm lenses respectively. Needless to say I now look forward to diving opportunities and especially love both Blue Heron Bridge and the Keys.
