I am a senior staff photojournalist, hired in June 1989. I have covered every type of news in South Florida, including elections, hurricanes, concerts, fashion, and lots of sports. Sports assignments have taken me around the country, mostly to cover football including both the University of Miami Hurricanes and the Miami Dolphins. I have covered both World Series that the Florida Marlins won, and the NBA playoff run that culminated with a world championship for the Miami Heat. I generally work from 3pm to 11pm, so quick deadlines are the norm for me, which I enjoy.
I was born in November of 1964 in Havana, Cuba. My family left Cuba in 1966 and moved to Spain, where we stayed for 15 months, before relocating to Queens, New York. I lived in New York until July of 1979, when we headed south to Miami. I graduated from Miami Sunset High School in 1982, and went on to the University of Miami, where I studied photojournalism and graduated with my B.A. in 1987. After a brief stint with the Charlotte Observer, I was hired by the Sun-Sentinel, where I have now worked for over 21 years. I am married to my wife Nicola and I have a precious daughter named Ella.
I am a huge music fan, and I love my rock and roll. Besides that, I take an interest in everything that my daughter does and likes.
