WPPI Roadtrip : Seattle


There’s no mistake. I’m my mother’s daughter. Puerto Rican, passionate, expressive. She was an actress, received a promising scholarship to study theater, but gave it up when she met my father. She can still recite her favorite scene from Oliver Twist from memory, which includes holding an invisible bowl of porridge and incredulously asking, MORE?!

Yes, she’s a bit odd. But she’s my mom. And I love her and all her pretend bowl holding ways.

I spoke last night for the WPPI Roadtrip in Seattle. I was exhausted and didn’t think I’d be able to form a single coherent thought. Lucky for me, the 400 photographers in the room were darn amazing. Together, we made it through and I can’t wait to see the changes we’ll make to move our businesses forward. I’ll also be speaking in Chicago and Washington DC, so if you’re in the area, I’d be honored to meet you.

From the appearance of these photos, it may look like I was reenacting my mother’s favorite scene from Oliver Twist. I just need to work on my English accent.

Happy Tuesday!
