I am CNN’s correspondent based in Havana, Cuba covering the island for all of the network’s platforms.
I have worked for over 10 years at CNN and often shoot and edit my stories. Some of my memorable assignments include reporting from the mine site for 43 days on the trapped Chilean miners, traveling the Gulf Coast during the BP oil spill and covering some of the busiest hurricane seasons on record.
I am a Duke grad, who loves travel, a good read and barbecue.
