Profile of Adolfo Guzman Lopez
For LAist, I profiled Adolfo Guzman Lopez, whose voice on the radio was one of the first times I heard a reporter using their name with Spanish pronunciation. It meant a lot to me at the time and I can't believe I get to call him a colleague now. The amazing Samanta Helou Hernandez made the portraits and photography for it!

Families Allege Harassment by LA County Sheriffs Deputies, a deeply reported piece for NPR's LAist Studios - Sat down with families in the early spring of 2022 who have lost their loved ones to the LA County Sheriffs' Department to talk about their ongoing lawsuits against the department where they argue there has been routine harassment from deputies. The episode starts with my first sit down with the Vazquez family who lost Marco Vazquez on October 6th 2019 and once they started organizing protests, a year later, sheriffs deputies began to show to their home unannounced. After my interviews, Frank Stoltze asked LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva about these allegations and argued that the families are paid activists. I mentioned these statements to the Vazquez family and got their responses on the record for this episode. Listen now.
Hosted by Frank Stoltze, this is the fourth episode in a series I co-produced with Marina Peña, Emily Guerin Senior Produced, Meg Cramer and Paul Glickman Edited with J.Valle doing original music. Full credits on LAist.
