Lucio Villa is an Interactive Producer at the San Francisco Chronicle, where he utilizes his web development and visuals skills to build interactive stories. Member of ONA, IRE and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists where he empowers journalists to learn how to code. Before returning to California, Villa was a News Applications Developer for Hoy, a daily Spanish publication in Chicago. Co-founder of Code Latino and (Honorary) Co-founder of Latino Techies in Chicago. In 2013, Villa completed a year-long photojournalism fellowship at the Chicago Reporter, where he covered immigration, health and trauma issues through photography and video.
