Hi there! I'm Cari, I was born abroad but raised in Chile. I grew up as a child stunned by the stars, I studied Industrial Engineering and getting a Master’s degree in Logistics (both in Chile), and specializing myself with a graduate degree at MIT in Supply Chain Management (at USA). But during 2017 Geminid's meteor shower, I discovered astrophotography, spending one year intensively learning positional and observational astronomy, as well as photography. Then, as this become such a huge pssion, I decided to quit my job as an engineer to dedicate myself 24/7 to astrophotography and astronomy popularization, from where I also began to travel to capture night skies from different latitudes and different phenomena.Nowadays, I still dedicate lot of time to the study and improvement of my landscape astrophotography techniques, also teaching classes on the same subject and its techniques, and deepening my knowledge in Astronomy to contribute in the world of astronomy popularization, in collaboration with several organizations such as Astrofotografía Chile, the Chilean Amateur Astronomical Community (CAACh) and collaborations with other astronomical dissemination entities.
