I have worked in every aspect of the creative arts and multi-media. In 2007, I founded La Prensa of Western Massachusetts in 2007 as a print edition and continues publishing it today online.
I am an award-winning writer and editor for English- and Spanish-language media including The Associated Press in Barcelona, having covered breaking news, business and the national soccer teams; The New York Daily News; The San Juan Star and El Vocero, then the two largest newspaper in Puerto Rico.
I have interviewed people from all spheres of life, from the youth who shot an off-duty police officer (for which she was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize) to Nelson Mandela.
Also was a communications consultant for the Mayor of San Juan, Sila Calderón; who then went on to become Puerto Rico’s first woman governor. Was media coordinator for Puerto Rico’s representation in Spain at the Sevilla Expo 1992. Co-producer of the critically acclaimed documentary “Vieques: Worth Every Bit of Struggle,” broadcast worldwide on Link TV and Russia TV, among other venues.
