My name is Levi and I am from Panama City, Panama. A tiny but lovely place that links the north and south halves of our continent. I am a photographer and director, though my multi-hyphenate self can't resist not adding the other hats I wear - video, design and art direction are all part of my forte.

After about 6 years of professional experience in my country (everything from quinceaneras, to weddings, to ad campaigns), I decided to take the plunge and move to NYC to pursue a career in Photography. This led me to the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan.

Fast forward to now, after a ton of blood, sweat, tears and unpaid internships, I can proudly say that I have accomplished a whole more than I had bargained for. I have directed global campaigns for Adidas, Reebok and Converse. Photographed high profile celebrities such as J Balvin and Michael B Jordan, and have connected with and photographed collections by acclaimed fashion designers such as Willy Chavarria, Joseph Altuzarra and Ulla Johnson. This along with way much more, makes me extremely proud of myself. It was only through sheer determination and an a huge sense of self-trust that I have gotten to where I am today, and resisted the urge to move back to Central America every time things would get rough. It was not an easy road, but I wouldn't change it for the world.
