I’m a multimedia journalist based in New York City. In May, I earned my M.S. from Columbia’s Journalism School and now am freelancing around the city.

151002_1532910878318_1079032_nBorn and raised in Miami, I am now a full-fledged New Yorker. But, I’m still seeking NYC’s best Cuban sandwich.

During my undergrad years at Columbia, I studied environmental engineering for two years. Many math problems and lab reports later, I felt more like a robot than a thinker, and so I transferred into the college.

Also while in undergrad, I worked for several non-profits, such as America Reads and the American Legacy Foundation.

In 2012, I graduated with a degree in socio-cultural anthropology, wrote a senior thesis about fingernail decoration, and was all the better for having a background in both hard and soft science.
