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 100 Latina Birthdays, an audio documentary series about Latina health (episodes out 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!
