I'm currently a digital editor at the Los Angeles Times, where I assisted the team that won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news. I produce and edit the latimes.com homepage and assist in all things digital including; newsletter production, social media, content production and mobile breaking news notifications.. Additionally, I look for innovative ways to present our digital storytelling to our readers.
Before The Times, I was a fill-in producer -- both radio and digital -- at KPCC and produced radio pieces for The Frame, focusing on entertainment news and culture.
As a reporter, I've covered Latino issues, the LGBTQ community, immigration, politics, technology, the arts and health in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
My work has aired on KPCC, KCRW and has appeared at Marketplace, NPR.org, voxxi.com, Hispanic Link, univision34.com and the award-winning multimedia project, Borderzine.
In 2013, I participated in the McCormick's Specialized Reporting Institute on Immigration in El Paso, Texas. Journalists from all over the U.S. were taught new methods on how to report on immigration including data analysis, story sourcing and trends. I was also chosen to be an AIR New Voices Scholar for the PRPC in Atlanta.
While at NPR's Digital News department, I worked on web production and online reporting. I'm an alumnus of the Scripps Howard Foundation internship program in Washington, D.C. at the Hispanic Link News Service, where I reported on national Latino topics. I was a UNITY 2012 Student Projects fellow and past NAHJ Ruben Salazar Scholarship recipient.
I graduated from California State University, Northridge, where I was a reporter and editor of school publications — the Daily Sundial and El Nuevo Sol, the bilingual multimedia project.
I'm a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, the Asian American Journalists Association and the Online News Association. I'm an organizer of NAHJ Los Angeles' #LATINCon, a conference that provides training to journalists on the trends of the digital and social media spaces. I also spoke at SXSW 2017 on elevating the next generation of journalists of color.
