Senior / Broadcast Journalism

I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Growing up with a father that coached a Little League baseball team that went on to win championships in the United States, I was destined to fall in love with sports.

Playing multiple sports as a teen made me discover that my passion in life would involve sports journalism, which lead me to choose this career path as I enrolled within the College of Communications at Penn State.

So far in my career I’ve had the opportunity to intern for a newspaper in Maryland, The Daily Times, where I was a sports reporter for a month and a half. During that time I learned so many invaluable lessons about how to be a professional and how important it is to be self-organized. I’ve also interned with Penn State Athletics Video Production department, which has showed me a new passion in my life, sports production. This past summer I interned with CBS Sports Network in New York City in their On-Air Promos Department. I learned so many invaluable lessons in my time there.

Through my time in Penn State I’ve managed to experience many different forms of media, from producing a weekly radio newscast to producing game notes for collegiate teams. I’ve also been involved with ComRadio, which is the student-run radio station at Penn State.

My aspirations are that I can continue to move my career within the sports media business forward in hopes of landing a job that I will always look forward to and never view as a job but more as an enjoyable hobby.
