As the Tribune's nightlife columnist, I interview celebrities, cover movie premieres and Chicago-related entertainment news and attend parties and club openings.

Both of my parents are from Colombia, which made for an interesting upbringing in Highland Park, Ill. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2003 and then interned at men's magazine FHM in 2004.

In 2005, I became the Trib's first full-time soccer reporter. I learned how to work on barely any sleep when I covered the 2006 World Cup in Germany and have been using that skill regularly since becoming the nightlife columnist in May 2009.
