When I arrived at Mama Alice, I was a young man with some insecurities and somewhat shy, because I had just lost my parents. In the following years, I gained confidence with my colleagues, being with them is like being with a family. I was able to adapt to the working method and gain experience. Today I feel that I still have a long way to go with the Mama Alice team and I am sure that together we achieve change in this society.

I would love to travel around the world to photograph.

I remember all the volunteers who left a mark of love and hope on the children, they were very kind and collaborative with us. I remember Manou, she supported me with a lot of patience to deliver my photographic projects. She became a good friend.

As a photographer, I like to take spontaneous photos where recreation and fun are reflected in the faces of our children. In particular, I don’t have a favourite photo, but I feel happy looking at this picture of the Mama Alice children:

My Hobbies are: making jewellery, playing the guitar, singing, and sometimes drawing and I really like listening to the music of the 70s, 80s, and 90s.

 I am a fan of my Mentor Pablo Preisser, who passed away last year due to health problems. He lovingly trained me with patience and discipline, he was the one who sent me my certificate of having completed my studies in photography, I will praise his name with much honour and pride when possible.
