Hello there! I am a New York-based writer with more than 12 years of experience in the field of soft news. My work as a stylist, producer and photographer for publications such as The New York Daily News, People en Español, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle and Elle –Mexico editions- have made me an industry insider.

Currently I am web editor of, position that I hold since January 2016. I am also a staff writer for the printed monthly issue of People en Español.

Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to meet and interview some of the world’s most recognizable names in fashion and entertainment, such as Michael Kors, Valentino, Jean Paul Gaultier, Carolina Herrera, Placido Domingo, Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi and George Lopez, among many others.

I am also the writer of the coffee table book Nuevo New York, authored by Gabriel Rivera-Barraza and Hans Neumann and published in 2016 by Damiani.

I am a registered member of the New York Foreign Press Center, a State Department affiliate. In my spare time I like to volunteer for HOLA! of Garden City, a non-profit organization founded by women of Hispanic descent to preserve their heritage and the richness of the Spanish language in Garden City, Long Island.
