Hi there! My name is Alicia and I am a Cuban-American photographer currently based in Gainesville, FL. I just graduated from the University of Florida with a B.A. in Visual Art Studies, a certificate in Graphic Design, and a minor in Art History. This fall, I will be continuing my education at UF as I will begin my M.A. in Mass Communications with a specialization in Public Relations.
I am a strong believer that photography serves as a medium to empower and share stories with others. This is why I focus on portrait photography and love working with clients to capture their best selves. Some other things I love are being near the ocean, music, fencing, and weightlifting.
Thank you for being here! :)

Anti-Racism Repository, 2021
As part of a team of the communications team from the UF Center for Arts in Medicine, I collaborated with researchers, staff, and other students in the launch of an online repository to elevate arts-based responses to racism. As part of this project I was tasked with choosing artworks by various creators and putting them together to create headers for the repository's website. The particular example showcased above contains posters by three different artists and I put them together to create the header of the repository's home page.

Fencing Zoom Practices, 2020
As women's overall captain and women's epee captain of the University of Florida Fencing Club, I came up with the idea of hosting practices over Zoom in order to stay safe at the beginning of the pandemic. Alongside men's epee captain Neil Ash, we directed over twenty practices over the course of the Summer 2020 semester.
