I am the editor of the Matagorda Advocate newspaper, the weekly newspaper in Bay City.

Read my profile at Inland Press:

Was born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley and graduated from Saint Edwards University in Austin with a bachelors in Rhetoric and Writing. Also attended the University of Texas-Pan American where I studied journalism.

Before coming to work here, I was a reporter for Valley Newspapers in McAllen, where I did reporting, editing and photography. I was also the copy editor for the Pan American, the university newspaper at UTPA.

I am a recipient of the Inland Press Association Minority Program. For the next three years I will be attending conferences and workshops and be active on Inland committees and be a potential contributor to Inland workshops.
