That little person in the black sweater holding out a tape recorder is me.

I am a journalist and tech entrepreneur.

On the journalism end, I’m digital journalist with more than a decade of experience. I embraced blogging journalistically in 2003, pushed for Web-versions of my newspaper stories to run before they ran in the paper in 2005 and can attribute my use of social media to landing me jobs in 2006 (Thank you MySpace!) and 2010 (Thank you Facebook!).

As an entrepreneur,  I’m co-founder of two startups: 7 Generation Games (ed tech) and evrybit (media innovation).

I wrote for ESPN.com in some capacity from 2006-2013, most recently I was the site’s first social media columnist. I also wrote a weekly column for Fox News Latino from 2010-2013, usually about the intersection of Latino issues and sports. I freelanced for a whole bunch of places. I began my career as an editorial assistant at Sports Illustrated, spent two years as a sports reporter at The (Fort Wayne, Indiana) News-Sentinel.

Before heading back west (I’m a California native, but spent 13 years living east of the Mississippi in places where it snowed), I was an adjunct professor in the Journalism Department at Emerson College and twice a guest lecturer at Tufts University.

I was the National Association of Hispanic Journalists’ Emerging Journalist of the Year in 2007, named of one Newspapers in Education’s “Faces of the Future: Hispanics Who Will Influence the World” in 2008 and selected for the Fulbright Commission’s Berlin Capital Program in 2009.

I’m currently living Silicon Valley, but constantly debating if it would be better to move to Santa Monica and live by the beach.
