Welcome to my portfolio!

I'm a skilled communicator and a results-driven researcher with an ever-growing curiosity. I've been in digital and print content creation for the last four years, and I've got a diverse body of work to show for it. Writing affords me the invaluable opportunity to meet passionate people, explore interesting places and share little-known stories with the world. I love what I do, and I trust you will too.

Pinup Star Lisa Love’s Homecoming at GARR 2017

El Paso native Lisa Love first broke onto the rockabilly scene back in 2007 when she started entering pinup contests throughout the nation. Compelled by the glitz and glamour of 40s and 50s-era women, Love developed an affinity for vintage clothing, makeup and hair trends. Her remarkable beauty, refined stage presence and impeccable attention to detail made her a predominant figure in the pinup world, earning her a coveted partnership with world-renowned rockabilly pillar Viva Las Vegas, and a revered place among the best models in the industry.

Sun City Roller Girls To Ram and Jam at Rockabilly Riot

Since 2008, the Sun City Roller Girls have been bringing beauty, brawn, and all-around badassery to the El Paso sports scene.

These women are hell on wheels. “You’ll be amazed at the hits that go down,” said league co-founder Teresita Lopez.

Laura Turón’s Paradox

In an unassuming warehouse, quite literally off the beaten path in Mesquite, New Mexico, artist Laura Turón works meticulously on her latest project. Turón is known for her signature mark-making work, usually displayed in large-scale, single-plane installations.
