I'm a multilingual journalist based in Los Angeles, California, with 10 years of experience in audio production, editing, print and on-air feature writing, and investigative reporting.

I write about the experience of immigrating to the U.S. for outlets like The Guardian and pull from my rigorous background in political science to frame my reporting. One article I wrote about the conditions asylum seekers are facing in open-air detention centers was cited in a complaint to the Department of Homeland Security filed by humanitarian groups. Another feature about the U.S.-Mexico border was published in The Guardian's printed magazine in the UK. And my enterprise reporting on a Covid-19 outbreak among garment workers in downtown Los Angeles in 2020 contributed to renewed calls for these workers' rights.

As a seasoned audio producer and editor, I've launched and run dozens of shows, including the inaugural season of 100 Latina Birthdays, an audio documentary series about Latina health in the U.S. I managed and produced a popular interview show for Latinas, a weekly political show for women of color in the U.S., and an original podcast for the Oprah Winfrey Network. I reported content for original narrative shows about school lunch, reparations, and criminal justice. I also worked as a producer at Slate, MarketplaceKCRW, and other companies around the world.

This year, I'm leading an investigation for Feet in 2 Worlds and WNYC on Spanish-language media ahead of the 2024 election.

 

Thanks to all this experience, I consult for foundations that study the state of journalism and how to identify meaningful projects, and I also talk with institutions looking to launch podcasts.

 

I enjoy speaking at conferences in my role as a leading Latina audio producer, and I love reading novels--especially ones by Latina authors, a group I hope to belong to one day.
