b.1983 Brazilian - Porteña by choice 

My interests and the way I see the world are influenced by Psycology and Public Policies. 

I have a polarized practice that, in one side, envolves documenting stories that are linked with my life experiences and personal social engagements and on the other side, an experimental studio practice where I explore archive material and the psycology of home and family.
