Drawing upon his Hispanic origin and journalism background, Felipe easily establishes relationships with other journalists serving the Hispanic community in the United States.

Back in Mexico, his home country, Felipe became a national columnist in Mexico at age 23, largely because of an important role in news coverage of the 2000 U.S. and Mexican presidential elections while working with Grupo Reforma (Mexico’s largest print media organization) in the Washington D.C. bureau. He wrote for 7 years weekly column entitled “Rapsodia Política” (Political Rhapsody) for Novedades de Mexico (national circulation), and later for Intolerancia Diario and Periódico Cambio (regional circulation).

Felipe has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the Universidad de las Américas Puebla (Mexico) and a Diploma on Political Journalism from Georgetown University.

    Hey, I really like your blog. I just heard about this great new documentary called the “Other Mexico” that I think you might be interested in. It focuses on Mexico’s poor and indigenous citizens who have no voice in the political system, and the growing Zapatista movement. You can check out a clip on you tube: http://youtube.com/watch?v=XyhX-UMQJz4. Hope you check it out.
