I am a creative person, still searching for a medium. I am a passionate and proficient writer, and am slowly learning photography and design. I'm interested in typography, psychology, and etymology. Somehow, these passions have led me to a career "on-the-air," and my writing has found a longtime home in the pages of the Las Cruces Sun-News. I've emceed numerous clubs and concerts, interviewed President Barack Obama (and First Lady Michelle), and scores of celebrities--some of whom I'm fortunate to count as friends, My objective is to stay busy, and to make the world a better place through my efforts, both at work and play. And to never stop learning.
I work to fulfill media inquiries, public records requests, issue press releases, and manage all internal and external communications on behalf of the school district. I also serve as the district's records custodian. LCPS employs more than 3,700 employees and is committed to serving approximately 25,000 students each day.
I worked to fulfill all press inquiries and public records requests for the office of Third Judicial District Attorney Mark D'Antonio. I was also a grant-writer for the organization, working to secure alternative sources of funding.
Primarily an education reporter for the Las Cruces (NM) Sun-News. My beat included the Las Cruces Public Schools system, Gadsden Independent School District, Dona Ana Community College and New Mexico State University.
My goal was to bring fresh reporting and more in-depth stories to this desk.
Occasionally, I ventured outside the scope of this beat. That's when things get weird.
I contributed five profiles for the 2015 Southwest New Mexico Legislative Guide.
As a freelance reporter, I have contributed several business profiles for the Business section of the Las Cruces Sun-News.
In 2014, I wrote "Meet Your Las Cruces Professionals," an advertorial feature profiling twelve Las Cruces businesses.
For more than 14 years, I've written a weekly entertainment/pop-culture column for "Pulse," the entertainment tabloid in the Las Cruces Sun-News. In all, I've written more than 740 consecutive, weekly columns.
