Higher Education Correspondent (he/him)

I explore the nuances of how students navigate higher education on their way to graduation.

I'm also the host of The Forgotten Revolutionary podcast.

Over the last 20-plus years I've covered a lot of what makes L.A. L.A. — transportation, K-12 education, municipal politics and art, and I’ve profiled many of our most creative visual and performing artists.

I’ve found this wide range of reporting experience helps me in my current beat.

I was born in Mexico City and grew up in Tijuana and San Diego. I’ve spent a lot of time keeping up my Spanish and that’s helped me stay connected to my Mexican culture, and the cultures of Latin America.

I’ve put in a lot of miles driving around Southern California to report, and that’s led me to love how distinct each neighborhood is: in geography, architecture, warmth, and food.

I’ve won the LA Press Club’s 2006 Radio Journalist of the Year and other awards. I live with my family in Long Beach.
