Freelance Multimedia Reporter-Writer

In short, I've been published in The Miami Herald, NBC 6, Tu Discovery, Univision and FIU media film festivals. I am also a recipient of the Janet Chusmir Memorial Scholarship. I make independent creative videos. Currently began studying HTML and creative suites to further hone this absurd creative energy.

In truth, the stories write themselves. The videos come to life. I'm just the mediator of it all. I'm the artist in the newsroom.
