Video/News Producer. Formerly at Fusion and HuffPost. Born in Brooklyn. Raised in Queens. Colombian/Puerto Rican-American with a strong affinity for Spain. When I'm not inundating myself in news, I like watching the NY Yankees, discovering new craft beer/delicious food spots and wandering the city.
