About Me

Currently working at The San Francisco Chronicle as an Interactive Producer, designing and developing interactive stories. Previously I worked at Hoy Chicago, a Spanish daily, as a News Apps Developer and at The Chicago Reporter as a Photojournalism Fellow.

During my time at The Chicago Reporter, I realized that I can utilize my web development skills in journalism and started exploring data visualizations, map tools and open-source apps.

Originally from Compton, CA, and graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a Bachelor’s Degree in Photojournalism.

I enjoy attending hackathons, co-founder of Code Latino Chicago and the Latino Techies Chicago Meetup, member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ).

Catch me at NICAR 2018.
