I am a graphic journalist and multimedia artist from Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. I was a producer, graphic journalist and editor for  Al Instante News for Mexicali’s  Canal 12: “La Imagen del Conocimiento”  (Universidad Autonoma de Baja California) and taught media classes at the same university.

One of my biggest interests and concerns are the human rights violations in Mexico and the murder of journalists. These and other issues are part of my blog. Check it out!

After working in journalism and College Radio my interests grew in the possibility of combining the arts with social justice. I studied  Theater at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa California and later 

applied and was granted a scholarship at the Cornerstone Institute Theater in Los Angeles CA. This program teaches students how to produce Communiy Theater according to the method created by Cornestone Theater Company . The play produced that year was an adaptation of Federico Garcia Lorca’s Blood Wedding. A collaboration with Westley & Grayson, neighboring unincorporated towns in Stanislaus County with combined population of 2000. The cast of 48 included 35 local residents and 10 community members served on crew. Performed on the basketball courts of the newly opened United Community Center and Park.

During the first year of the COVID pandemic I was fortunate to attend and online puppeteer workshop with Sanglass Theater as part of their grants program. The Summer Intensive Workshop believes that the puppet, as a theatrical medium, evokes the worlds of our dreams and memories, offering many metaphorical possibilities. Puppet theater creation can begin in many places: through exploring a material, through play and relationship, or through dramaturgical research. Sandglass teaches a method of puppet performance that has been developed over 30 years of workshops around the world. 

Currently I collaborate with the artistic collective SolArt Radio and SolArt Media & Design in Santa Ana CA, founded by Sali Heraldez. We produce a Radio Show called the SolArt Radio hour and is transmitted LIVE on Radio Santa Ana 104.7 FM Mondays at Thursdays at 5 pm. and online at and

SolArt Media and Design offers services for non profits and independent artists . At SolArt we also produce art exhibits, music shows, poetry readings and more. You can find more about it here

I love music and taking photos of artists in their creative process too. Some of this photos were featured at the exhibit "Siempre es Hoy" curated by us at SolArt  and presented at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Arts in Santa Ana in collaboration with La Banda Elastica. Siempre es Hoy: Capturing the Latin Alternative Moment KCET

I also collaborated  with illustrations and video for the book and exhibit "SantAna Fairy Tales" written by Sarah Rafael García. SanTana's Fairy Tales is an oral history, storytelling project initiated by author Sarah Rafael Garcia, which integrates community-based narratives to create contemporary fairytales and fables that represent the history and stories of Mexican/Mexican-American residents of Santa Ana.


The book "SantAna Fairytales" and art exhibit has been received with a lot of love after its opening in Santa Ana and then a tour in the State of Texas . To learn more about this multimedia project ( book, art exhibit, live music and video) please visit "SantAna Fairy Tales". You can see the artwork currently displayed at LibroMobile Bookstore in Santa Ana.

The book was included in the publication Dread and Delight Fairy Tales in an Anxious World by Emily Stamey

I am currently also part of Radio Santa Ana.
