I’m a life-long resident of Seattle. I grew up in the University District, graduated Roosevelt High and received my BA and Master’s degrees from the University of Washington. In my spare time, I love to read non-fiction and history, study Spanish, create music programs for KBCS and travel.

I’ve lived and traveled in China, Japan, Indonesia, Europe, Mexico and Canada. I created Musica de la Raza in 2003 after returning from living in Tucson, Arizona; believing that a program dedicated to Mexican and Mexican-American music was worth having at KBCS.

I recognized then that stereotypes and prejudice against people from Mexico, particularly immigrants, was imminent and that combating prejudice and stereotypes with music is a powerful and positive way that I can contribute as a member of my community.

My mission is to bring the best in traditional, classic and contemporary Mexican and Mexican-American music to the airwaves. Gracias por escucharme!
