Alonso Moreno

Multimedia Journalist

Location icon United States of America

Hello, my name is Alonso Moreno and I am a journalist from El Paso, Texas. Having lived in the United States - Mexico border and now in Central Florida, I have been exposed to a unique blend of lifestyles and cultures that has given me a one of a kind perspective that I bring into everything I do.

What started as a simple desire to convey my feelings about the borderland eventually matured into a passion for all forms of print and digital communication. Besides my journalism experience, most recently I have been a member of The Walt Disney Company, an incredible experience that has taught me everything from world class customer service skills, to the unique magic of Disney storytelling.

Thank you for taking a moment to look at my work. If you like what you see, please feel free to contact me.
