what i do

I write non-fiction (journalism & creative) and produce & engineer podcasts with The Conversation, IDEO, the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Talking Machines.

I like stories about immigration, family history, and people with a spark of defiance. I’m all about empowering people to tell their own tales, and I believe journalists should remember to be human first.

I’m based in Boston, but I work with teams all over the world.
Contact me for work opportunities, local or remote.

some previous experience

I’ve reported on immigration, extremist politics, culture and the arts for the better part of a decade. I covered the 2016 Republican and Democratic National conventions, and the 2017 presidential inauguration for the BBC/Public Radio International show The World. Prior to that I developed the digital department at WLRN, South Florida’s public radio station, and launched the first podcast there.

I co-host the occasional podcast Las Cafecitas with Isis Madrid. We interview people who inspire us and talk about pop culture and being bicultural in the US.

teaching and training

I’m a co-founder of SMASH Boston, a group for women and non-binary audio producers smashing the patriarchy. SMASH hosts skillshares with the PRX Podcast Garage in Allston.

I teach non-fiction, audio storytelling and narrative structures at GrubStreet in Boston; writing and reporting in Spanish at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism; and podcasting at Emerson College. I’m also a mentor with NPR’s Next Generation Radio program, which trains college students from underrepresented communities across the country.
