Born in Santurce, Puerto Rico, raised all across the island’s metropolitan area, in love with the movies from Day One, started writing my first film reviews and short stories and poems for my high school newspaper. Little did I know that what became an extracurricular activity at school would turn into a full time career…even though I wanted to venture into video production. An entertainment reporter for ¡Exito! and then HOY, later a Senior Editor in charge of features and arts and entertainment for all three editions of HOY (NY, LA and Chicago), I became the editor of the now sadly defunct Café Magazine in 2008, where I took my first stab at original online publishing. I wrote film reviews for CityVida, a Chicago-based entertainment site aimed at bilingual and bicultural Latinos, and am currently writing reviews for Gozamos.com and efilmcritic.com.
