I'm a journalist and audio producer and editor based in Los Angeles, California.
I tell stories from the immigrant community in the U.S. and am passionate about representing the experiences of my family, friends, and neighbors in all their richness and complexity. I report these stories for several outlets, including The Guardian.
In 2017, I put the spotlight on Disneyland workers struggling with low wages and homelessness. My enterprise reporting in 2020 uncovered a Covid-19 outbreak among garment workers in downtown Los Angeles. I wrote about the political conversations Latinos were having in a new congressional district in Colorado during the last midterms. And since 2022, I'm reporting people's experiences at the San Diego-Tijuana border.
I'm also an editor. I assigned, managed, and edited ten episodes with over a dozen reporters and fact-checkers I hired for the first season of an audio documentary series about Latina health (coming fall 2023). This is while overseeing daily operations at LWC Studios, an independent podcasting company. I also reported and produced content for original narrative investigative shows about school lunch, reparations, and criminal justice. I wrote and edited scripts for clients including Penn State University and Aspen Institute.
I speak regularly at conferences in my role as a leading Latina audio producer.
I speak Spanish and French fluently. My first experience in journalism was at Eur@dionantes, an EU-funded, local radio station in Nantes, France, where I produced, hosted, reported, and got that insatiable appetite for radio - in French!
