I'm a journalist with over 15 years of experience reporting domestically and internationally. I cover breaking news and enterprise reporting on politics and government, immigration and race relations. My stories have appeared in various news outlets in the U.S. and abroad, including New York Daily News, The Washington Post, Yahoo News, The LA Times, Alternet and Public Radio International, and have been translated into different languages. I was a correspondent for The Associated Press, The Jersey Journal, and The Philippine Daily Inquirer.
Additionally, as a communications and media professional, I manage programs and campaigns, pitch, write and edit communications content across all media platforms, as well as oversee and sustain media relations with key local and national publications and broadcast networks.
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 National Health Journalism Fellowship. I attended Harvard University, University of the Philippines, and Columbia University, where I was awarded a Charles H. Revson Fellowship and received my master’s degrees in public administration and journalism.
