I’m an old soul.

I love to hunt for antiques and vintage treasures, whether books or trinkets. I appreciate the value, craftsmanship, originality and of course, the history of aged things.

I finally took the time to create an Etsy shop, “Oddities And Treasures”, to share the unique things I find while thrifting :)

In middle school I was not too thrilled when my parents too me to stinky old thrift shops, but now, my motto is: the older the more valuable!

Over the years, I developed a keen eye for spotting vintage and antiques, and now enjoy hunting with my parents.

Aside from oddities and rustic treasures, I also feature prints and photo canvas of my photography.

I hope to one day sustain my family with my creativity; at least on the side.

Non Profit Photography

As the Social Media Director & Newsletter Editor for the Long Beach Latino Civic Association, I am privilaged to be the “online voice” that bridge the gap between the organization and the community they serve.

Although I am fortunate enough to be get paid for this position, I volunteer my time, energy and skills by photographing special events and programs the LBLCA provides, supports or manages.

I’ve been so busy on the clock (and off the clock) that I haven’t had the time to update my own blog/website.

Below are a few albums of the events I’ve photographed for the LBLCA. For the complete collection of albums, visit: LBLCA Albums

Only when you realize that you are a part of the world (and not consumed by your own #selfies #drama #insecurities) can you begin to make the world a better place.

Death is inevitable. Create something that will live forever.

Working for the Long Beach Latino Civic Association as a Social Media Director, Newsletter Editor, Creative Designer (brochures, invitations, fliers…etc) and Photographer has been a true blessing. Not only do I get to promote #EnvironmentalJustice #CulturalAwareness and #CivicParticipation in #LongBeachNY, I am able to utilize today’s technological advancements like #SocialMedia and #Apps to advocate for a better world.

I’m thankful. I’m happy. I’m honored.
