A small animal can have great impact on a large circle of people. The battle around Vaquitas has been going on for decades and it is coming to an end. Witness this battle through the eyes of people that have different values and goals.


I am a biologist artist telling stories using the camera. My work focuses on advocating a scientific, objective, and behavioral understanding of the animals without romanticism. I believe that stories deserve to be treated patiently and gently. I strive to tell stories through multiple perspectives and unveil the layers beneath those stories.
