Sports PR Intern

Book Hill Partners

I was a PR intern for the Taylor Hooton Foundation in Washington, D.C., where I was in charge of generating more attention to the foundation by using social networking, research and pitching events to the media. I created their TwitterFacebook  and Facebook Group pages, which have a combined 1,600 friends, followers and fans.

Assistant Producer

FIU/ Miami Herald

I produced "The Stigma Stops With Me," a reality web series on an AIDS patient living in South Florida. I assisted the production team on several shoots, and I was in charge of setting up shoots. The web series was published on the Miami Herald website and has received national recognition. After its debut, the series was picked-up by PBS. PBS has the series on its website and also published my essay on AIDS in the Hispanic Community.

University of Sevilla
I was part of a selected group of seven students to participate in a pilot program to study abroad in Sevilla, Spain. I created a blog for FIU about my experience. I helped create a PR presentation to help promote Sevilla for the Spanish Department of Tourism. I also created a 30 second and 60 second television spot.


I have done a little bit of everything in the media world.
