Producer and Editor
I’ve always worked with one foot in films and the other in journalism. I’ve done a lot of different things for the screen, from documentaries to writing feature films. As a journalist, I’ve worked in several Puerto Rican newspapers and magazines, until I started collaborating with Radio Ambulante and became obsessed with the idea of producing radio stories with this team.
I live in San Juan with Lucienne, my girlfriend, and our daughter Jimena.
What is your favorite episode of Radio Ambulante?
There’s a bunch of them! “N.N. (Ningún Nombre)”, “El otro, el mismo”, “Crudo Ecuador” and “La concursante”, just to mention a few.
Which are you favorite podcasts?
Masacote con Chente Ydrach, You Must Remember This, This American Life, Radiolab, Reply All, 99% Invisible, Serial
What is your best talent?
My ability to drink a glass of water while lying down. My girlfriend says that the things I can do in a horizontal position are amazing, like writing Radio Ambulante scripts and editing audio.
