I'm a journalist interested in arts, culture and ideas.
I was the Getty's first social media coordinator and now report for the Los Angeles Times.
As a freelance journalist, you can find some of my work on NPR and KPCC.
I received my B.A. in English from UC Berkeley. I thought I was going to live in Walden Pond like my favorite author.
Instead, I graduated from UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism where I fell in love with all the ways to tell a story.
I served on the local board of theNational Association of Hispanic Journalists, Los Angeles chapter.
I was the Dorothea Lange Fellow and News21 Knight News fellow.
Before that I served as arts editor of The Daily Californian, UC Berkeley's newspaper.
I'm originally from East Los Angeles where I can still be seen walking down Whittier Boulevard eating shrimp burritos from Tacos Baja.
