my favorite thing is sobremesa

I'm Alexandra, a visual artist and editor. My creative work, largely travel photography and illustration, highlights the mundane through playful forms and gestures. I currently offer visual branding services (logo design, photography, social media strategy, etc.) and, alongside my partner, Raul, promote Miami-area artisans at our community shop, Mima Market.

I'm happiest when collaborating with fellow creatives. My career highlights are as a photo editor for Afar magazine in San Francisco, a mural coordinator at the Municipality of Lima, Peru, an English/Spanish teacher & interpreter in Asbury Park, NJ, and a photographer for New York’s Governor Paterson.
