Since my mentorship with the Young Photographers Alliance concluded, I have been fortunate enough to be presented with a slew of incredible opportunities and accolades. Last December, I won Young Travel Photographer of the Year 2013—an international competition judged by museum curators and magazine editors. This is the second time that I have received this honor—in 2010, I was the first American ever to win the award.
Thanks to the Travel Photographer of the Year Awards and their wonderful honor, I will have my photographs exhibited at the esteemed Royal Geographical Society in London from July 11th to August 17th, 2014 for the third time. In the next few months, I will also have my photographs installed at the Bronx High School of Science—my high school, which has the most Nobel Prize winning graduates in the nation and at the Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education on April 12th, 2014—an 80-year-old educational institution whose graduates include Rita Moreno and Tito Puente.
Moreover, I am scheduled to lecture at the International Museum of Photography and Film at the George Eastman House as part of their prestigious “Wish You Were Here” series on June 5th. I was also the subject of a filmed interview for the New York Institute of Photography’s upcoming travel photography course which will go on sale later this year.
