HIGHLIGHTS

I'm a bilingual, Spanish-English journalist and filmmaker. I film, produce and report breaking news and short-form documentary films. 

 

My career began in Central and South America, where I traveled extensively throughout the region before basing out of Buenos Aires, Argentina for The Associated Press. I covered breaking news, such as the FIFA corruption scandal, to in-depth features like horse cloning in the sport of polo. My work has been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, NBC News, The New York Post and translated in 7 different languages.

After South America, I relocated to London where I branched into the independent film scene: directing, filming and producing my first documentary on the final generation of undocumented elderly in the digital age.

 

I moved to New York City in 2016 where I produced short documentaries for CBS News. I traveled across the world including Iceland and the Pacific Islands reporting on climate change and reproductive rights.

 

I tackled hard-hitting news for NBC as an Investigative Producer where I reported on consumer news for NBC Nightly News and the TODAY Show.
