I'm a bilingual multimedia journalist from Texas living in Washington, DC. I use video, photos, words and sometimes GIFs to cover issues related to policy, immigration, borders and underrepresented communities.
As a video journalist for BBC News, I travel the US and sometimes Latin America to report behind and in front of the camera -- both in Spanish and English. I've also produced work for PBS Newshour, AJ+, the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Antonio Express-News and Richmond Confidential. I'm a two-time student Emmy winner.
I hold a Master of Journalism from the UC Berkeley's Journalism School, where my thesis reporting focused on the long-term effects of gender violence in Ciudad Juárez and the arrival of Haitian migrants to Tijuana. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in both Mass Communications and Spanish from Our Lady of the Lake University.
When not in a newsroom or reporting from the field, you can find me giving journalism workshops to high school students -- or visiting a taco truck.
