I was born and bred in Mexico and grew up in the gorgeous city of Monterrey, surrounded by mountains. I studied in Austin, TX and Virginia Tech before coming to the UK to study in 2011.
Innovative storytelling uses the best tech – whether it’s VR/AR or simple more analog media – to put people at the centre of a story. I believe in the power of stories to bring us together, make us think and bring about change.
I love talking to people, cameras, editing, software, fighting with data viz, cleaning spreadsheets and the rush of producing live television. I live in Kent with my cat-overlord @princessmccatface.
PS. Check out my sister Elsa García – she’s an Olympic gymnast and the definitely the cooler García sister.
