Washington DC

I love museums and I love news. I am allergic to chocolate.

I have worked in the “new media” divisions of legacy media companies –newspaper and radio. Became a space nerd after six years doing press for the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum.

I have a degree in Literature from Universidad Católica Andrés Bello in Venezuela and a master's degree in Media Studies from The New School in New York.
