About Me

During my tenure as the Washington DC Bureau Chief for CNN en Español, I led a team of on-camera talent, producers, guest-bookers, writers, and editors to various International News and Documentary Emmy® Award nominations. We thrived in breaking news, traveled with Pope Francis in Cuba, and produced interviews with President Obama in the White House. Together, we planned and executed logistically complex productions, such as extended coverage of US elections, conventions, debates, and inaugurations (2012-2016).
