About Me

23621716_390624248022189_572588219534021535_nI’m a journalist at the Indianapolis Star.

I write about things to do, business, culture and entertainment with a focus on digital story-telling in Indiana’s fast-growing Hamilton County.

I previously worked at the Corpus Christi Caller-Times in South Texas.

I’ve reported on a variety of topics including breaking news, a deadly homicide trend in domestic violence, exciting additions to state-of-the-art aquariums, to hurricane coverage, immigration and the separation of parents and their children at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Most recently I discovered a new love for reporting about things to do, arts and culture.

I studied journalism at Del Mar College and briefly at the University of Texas at Arlington.

I was born in Tampico, Mexico and moved to Corpus Christi with my family in 2001.

I am fluent in Spanish and Spanglish.
