I am a working bilingual journalist in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and currently a digital producer for KOB-TV in Albuquerque. I help manage the station’s social media feeds, website and digital content, as well as write and update breaking news, curating it for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram platforms. That includes occasional digital coverage in the field, including summer wildfires and the New Mexico Legislature.
I also work with the KOB 4 Investigates unit, a collaboration that has birthed the station’s first podcast, “Our Backstory,” focused on expanding on some of the bigger stories being tackled by the investigative unit.
I got my Bachelor’s in Multimedia Journalism from the University of New Mexico, where I also minored in Spanish. During a three-year tenure at the Daily Lobo, I primarily covered undergraduate student government along with the UNM Board of Regents and other general campus news. I served as a staff reporter, news editor, managing editor, editor-in-chief and also (occasionally) as a photojournalist.
During my time with the Daily Lobo, I helped uncover ongoing budget trends in which the Associated Students of UNM consistently allocated three-quarters of the spring budget back to itself and its entities.
In my young career, I have also freelanced for several publications around New Mexico, including the Albuquerque Journal, Clovis News-Journal, Edgewood Independent, ABQ Free Press and Farmington Daily Times, doing everything from covering culture and arts in central New Mexico to shooting baseball at the Connie Mack Tournament for video packages.
Outside of work, I enjoys watching movies (and reviewing them), going to Isotopes games, running, reading and continuously learning new skills.
