Multimedia Journalist for Good Morning Tri-State

When did you start working here?
May 2017 but had interned at WCPO when I was in college!

Where else have you worked?
I worked at our sister station, WKBW in Buffalo, New York before coming back to Cincinnati.

Where did you go to college?
S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University -- go Orange!

What are you most proud of when it comes to your work?
I love being creative with the video I take. I shoot, edit, and write all my stories, so making it fun for the viewer to watch is definitely something I try to do with every story I tell!

What are you most proud of in your own life?
Being back in Cincinnati in the station I always wanted to work at, at such a young age. I knew my goal was to get back here, and doing it when I did has been a blessing! Before Cincinnati, I lived around South America, and as soon as we moved to the Queen City, I knew it would hold a special place in my heart.

What do you love about living in the Tri-State?
I did two years of High School in Cincinnati (Indian Hill -- go Braves), and knew I had to come back after college. Food is a huge plus in the Tri-State -- so much to try and so much to do. I love our Sports teams and will forever be a Reds fan.

What are your favorite local hangouts/places, sports & cultural institutions?
Food is very important to me... mom and I love to eat at Mazunte (Mexican food) and Arrechissimo (Venezuelan food -- this is making me hungry)! I love trying out new places, especially with all the upcoming locales around OTR.

Being from Puerto Rico originally, I love to keep tabs on what the Hispanic community is up to through the Hispanic Chamber.

As for sports, I love going to Reds games -- nothing beats some baseball and hot dogs!

All-time favorites...
Shows: Bachelor in Paradise (guilty!), Impractical Jokers, Chopped
Books: The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware -- such a great mystery and thriller... I've never been more on my toes while reading a book!
Movies: Elf!!! I watch it whenever possible -- not just Christmas
Music: Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, anything that can get me dancing!

Apps I can't live without
Snapchat -- I love being able to connect with friends and family through a simple photo / video clip!
Instagram, our WCPO app of course, and Spotify -- I need my music!
