Hi! I currently cover New York media for mediabistro's FishbowlNY blog and aggregate stories for the mediabistro Morning Newsfeed. For two years, I was editor of Guanabee.com, a site devoted to covering Latino news, culture and gossip, including the odd Wendy Sulca video (she rose to something kind of like fame for a song about breastfeeding -- do check her out). I've contributed to Surface, Playgirl, Racialicious and Sadie magazine, and once had an article cross-posted on Jezebel, much to the apparent dismay of its commenters. I believe it's possible to be a feminist and still enjoy dancing alone to Pitbull in one's room. Every Friday night.

Also, since people tend to ask, and we're among friends anyway: My background is Cuban. Sen Dog is Cuban, Celia Cruz is Cuban, Wifredo Lam is Cuban, Yat-Sen Chang is Cuban, Gloria Estefan is Cuban. And I'm Cuban.

What I'm Listening To: 

Bluegrass / folk / metal / ska / reggaeton / rap / pop. And RadioLab.

What I'm Watching: 

Vanguard, infoMania and Peep Show.

... and maybe Real Housewives of New Jersey. And Jersey Shore. Maybe.

What I'm Reading: 

Honestly, mostly blogs. I've been trying to get through A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius for approximately 182 years now and I. Just. Can't.
