She received a double B.A in Economics and Development Studies from Brown University (USA, 2008) and graduated with honors from the MFA program in Documentary Media at Ryerson University Her work blends traditional documentary practice with new media in the search of communicating hyperrealities  that can describe the new paradigms of contemporary culture.  Digital video is seen as a research tool and a medium of expression for exploring the everyday, where the macro and micro structures collide. Her video-based work has been screened in festivals such as ArtMo (2018, 2019), Mana Miami (2018), Cinema Vertigo (2017), FIVA (2017),  Festival de Cine de Lima(2014),  NodosCC (2015),  ArtLima (2015), and in galleries such as Sala Miroquesada Garland (Lima, 2017).

The exhibition, held at a former bank, included video-mapping and speaker-robots.

She has completed Artists Residencies at Mana Contemporary (Miami, 2018), the Gao Bo Studio (Beijing, 2017), Artscape Gibraltar Point (Toronto, 2014) and Transmedia Zone, Ryerson University (Toronto, 2013).
