Futuro Media Executive Producer of Investigations & Special Projects
I am an investigative journalist
I was born in Havana. I lived in Los Sitios, I walked along the Malecón, I ate ice cream at Coppelia and I miss those streets, their houses, my people enormously.
I studied journalism at the Universidad Veracruzana. At that time, I wrote poetry. I even published a small collection of poems. I have loved poetry and, although I write less and less, I continue to read it in search of peace and beauty.
I started doing investigative journalism at the newspaper Imagen in Veracruz. Then I moved to Mexico City. I worked at Reporte Índigo, one of the most innovative journalistic projects of its time.
Between 2017 and 2021 I was a correspondent for Univisión's Investigative Unit. I covered a variety of topics, including drug trafficking, the security forces that fight it, corrupt politicians and transnational corporations.
In 2021, I was awarded a Scripps Howard Foundation's Jack R. Howard Fellowship in International Journalism and a Carlos M. Castaneda Journalism Scholarship to study at Columbia University, where I earned a Master of Arts in Business and Economics Journalism.
After being nominated six seven times in the Spanish-language news and documentary Emmy Awards, I won the Emmy in 2022 as a producer and investigative correspondent. I also won the Sigma Delta Chi Award from the Society of Professional Journalists for Spanish-language print/online investigative reporting. In 2023, the first investigation we published in Futuro Invesigates won the 2022 IRE Award.
I have published opinion columns in Sin Embargo, El heraldo de México and El Universal.
Today, my columns can be read in Reforma, Mural and El Norte, the most influential newspapers in Mexico.
I published the book Los millonarios de la guerra, about the enormous fortunes that have been made thanks to the "war on drugs".
