About Me

Currently working at The San Francisco Chronicle as an Interactive Producer, designing and developing long-form interactive stories, maps, graphics and newsroom tools/templates. 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, President of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) Bay Area chapter and member of Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE).
