I started working in the television industry before college at Televisa in Mexico, and then came to the US to complete my studies. My college, The Columbia School, in Chicago—is dedicated to the arts, specifically film and television. I also have an Executive MBA from the Anderson School of Business at UCLA.
Upon graduation from Columbia, I went to work for Univision, helping to launch a newly purchased station in Chicago, converting it from an English local station to a Spanish-language O&O. After working my way up to Promotions Director, I was promoted to the same position for the flagship station in Los Angeles (with a stop in between at launching the company’s entity in Puerto Rico).
From LA, I moved to Miami to lead the promotions department for the Network. While there, I launched many campaigns—but I’m most proud of the work we did for the 2012 World Cup and the company’s first domestically produced novela “Eva Luna.”
My wife Lori and I live in Westchester County, NY with our two children, Jake and Daniela, and our golden retriever Stella. We definitely bring an international and West Coast flair to the Northeast! When I’m not running from one soccer game to another, I enjoy watching NFL with my son and planning our next few family vacations.
