With twelve years in the news business and a passion for telling stories, I go where the stories are. I’ve followed stories from Puerto Rico to Guatemala and across the pond to London. If I can’t make it, I know how to put the right people in the right place at the right time so they can make the best photos that tell the stories. As a photographer and multi-media journalist with strong editing and managerial experience I am able to edit web video, audio slideshows, plan photo galleries, and other visual elements that enhance online storytelling. I am able to gather video and photos while on assignment.
I can interview on and off camera, and can choose the best platform to deliver this content. Using my fluency in Spanish to report on stories in the Latino community such as the ICE raid in Postville, IA and the 50th anniversary of Puerto Rico’s territory status with the U.S. I’ve lead a creative staff that included two Pulitzer Prize winners.
I’ve participated in America 24/7(Pennsylvania) and Americanos: Latino Life in the United States photo projects. I’ve worked as staff photographer for the Ottawa Daily Times, the Morning Call, and Photo Editor for the Des Moines Register and Juice Magazine. Most recently, I was the Senior Picture Editor at MailOnline.com and a Family Room Specialist for Apple Retail at the world famous Cube in NYC.
I am currently seeking new opportunities in Print, Online and TV.
Specialties: Photojournalism, Photo Editing, Managing a innovative staff, News Gathering, Multimedia Production, Customer Service, Apple hardware and software.
