I'm a journalist and audio producer in Los Angeles, California.

I report on immigrant rights issues and often talk to individuals

who struggle with low wages and homelessness. I like to

think about bilingual media, and how best to tell the 

immigrant and Latinx experiences of my family, friends, and neighbors. I also like thinking about urban planning and public spaces.

I am currently working on a radio documentary for Making Contact as the recipient of a USC Center for Health Journalism Fellowship. It will focus on the impact of anti-immigrant rhetoric and policy on LA's immigrant community, especially those on the front lines of activism and social work.

I edit podcast episodes and occasionally produce and report the news for public radio (see Work page). I was the associate producer for the award-winning season 2 of KCRW's music documentary show Lost Notes. I worked on all the episodes, including as the producer of a story about the first all-female rock band signed to a major label. I am currently producing an episode for KCRW's storytelling podcast UnFictional, out in the spring. I also fact-check articles for the Global Press Journal in Spanish, English, and French.

The California Chicano News Media Association chose me to be a finalist for the Ruben Salazar Excellence in Journalism award in 2017 for a piece about day laborers organizing against wage theft. I was also part of the Marketplace team that looked into how A.I. will change our economy, and we won a 2018 Gerald Loeb award in business journalism for it!

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, no less.
