Get 2 Know Me

  • The best parts of my day are pulling into the parking lot of the station I grew up watching in the morning and then seeing my family when I arrive home at night.
  • Former Communications Director for Senator John McCain in the SE Region of the U.S. for McCain 2008.
  • For more than 20 years, I called world title fights in Spanish from Las Vegas to New York City to Macau and everywhere in between. There is no comparison to the electricity of a heavyweight title fight.
Opening Double Quotation Mark

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it.

Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

Professional proudest moments?

Exposing the racial profiling of customers at Macy’s and Barneys in New York City, along with a collaborative investigation into boxer Jack Johnson where Eric Holder admitted on-camera “no question [he] was convicted unfairly”.

I’ve also done a round of sparring with legendary boxing champ Julio César Chavez!
