I am an award-winning audio journalist in Los Angeles.
I’m drawn to stories at the intersections of identity in arts and culture.
A longtime storyteller with work in print, digital, and audio, I’m currently a producer on NPR podcast TED Radio Hour. At NPR, I was previously a producer and guest host on It’s Been a Minute. I got my start in radio producing and reporting for The Frame, a daily radio show on NPR station KPCC. Past bylines include BBC World Service, CBC, LAist, The California Sunday Magazine, Marfa Public Radio, Bitch, make/shift, Huizache, and the Los Angeles Review of Books.
My work has won awards and honors from the Podcast Academy, Los Angeles Press Club, National Association of Hispanic Journalists, NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists, and KCRW’s 24-Hour Radio Race. I am a RIAS Berlin Commission Fellow, IWMF Gwen Ifill Fellow, and AIR New Voices Scholar. In a previous life, I spent many years advising and mentoring students at public universities throughout California.
A first-generation college graduate and lifelong Southern Californian, I received a B.A. in German studies at Scripps College and an MFA in creative nonfiction at the University of California, Riverside. I’m an alum of the Transom Traveling Workshop and the VONA Voices Workshop for writers of color.
Here’s a small sampling of my work.
