ABOUT/CONTACT

I'm a filmmaker and photographer based in New York.

Most recently, I was part of FRONTLINE's Investigative Journalist Equity Initiative. During this one-year fellowship, I co-produced and directed a film that reconstructs the law enforcement response to the shooting at Robb Elementary.

My work has taken around the world and across the United States. I have covered sensitive topics, including Colombia’s civil conflict, police brutality in the United States, and the refugee crisis in Venezuela.

Before moving to the United States, I worked as a videographer in the Mexico City bureau at Telemundo, where I reported extensively on the disappearance of 43 students from the Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers' College.

My work has appeared on Frontline, VICE News, HBO, Showtime, Telemundo, Al Jazeera, Univision, NBC News, TIME and, The New York Times.

I am a graduate of Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism where I sometimes work as an adjunct professor.
