I'm a journalist based in New York City, with over 20 years of experience reporting domestically and internationally. I cover breaking news and enterprise reporting on immigration, race relations and local politics and government.
My stories have appeared in various news outlets in the U.S. and abroad—including New York Daily News, Yahoo! News, The Jersey Journal, The Philippine Daily Inquirer and Public Radio International, among others—and have been translated into various languages.
Focusing mainly on a diverse network of nearly 8,000 community, ethnic and general-market media outlets, I develop and implement media strategies and campaigns on civil rights and social justice issues that reach immigrant and people of color communities for government agencies and nonprofit organizations.
I have been a recipient of a number of journalism awards and fellowships, including the New York Times Press Fellowship, Radio Television News Foundation and RIAS German/American Exchange Fellowship for Journalists and the USC Annenberg National Health Journalism Fellowship.
I attended Columbia University — where I was awarded a Charles H. Revson Fellowship in 2017 and received my master’s degree in public administration, concentrating in social and urban policy — Harvard University and the University of the Philippines.
