Archivos: 2015 Chicago Vocalo Radio Interview

Back in May 2015 I was interviewed, in Spanish, by Chicago’s Vocalo Radio in a series called “Domingo’s En Vocalo” where I shared about my life growing up in Compton, CA and my work as a photojournalist and web developer in Chicago.

Take a listen on SoundCloud and apologies for my Spanish, it was just OK back in 2015.
