I am a bilingual journalist in San Antonio, Texas, where I work as a digital producer for KENS 5. 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 and Facebook. That includes occasional digital coverage in the field, including summer wildfires and the New Mexico Legislature.
Prior to coming to the Lone Star Texas, I was a state over in New Mexico, where I helped launch the first podcast at KOB-TV in Albuquerque, “Our Backstory,” with the station’s investigative unit. I also worked here as a digital producer, which included helping to cover summer wildfires and the New Mexico Legislature from the field.
I received 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), exploring new places, running, reading and continuously learning new skills.
