About

  • Born in Manhattan, NY to immigrant Dominican parents, who moved us to Miami when I was 2 years old.
  • Grew up in North Miami, FL, with three sisters, one older, two younger.
  • Majored in journalism at the University of Florida, where I covered Gators sports for both the Independent Florida Alligator, and several newspapers and news services across the state.
  • Started at the Palm Beach Post in 2000 right out of school, covering the Florida Marlins for a season, then the Miami Heat.
  • Worked for the Miami Herald from 2002-2012, first as a Heat beat writer for six seasons, then as a sports columnist for four years.
  • Have worked full time for ESPN (started as a freelancer on several shows) since 2012, working as an NBA columnist for ESPN.com, a regular panelist on shows like Around the Horn, Highly Questionable, The Sports Reporters, The Jump, Outside the Lines, and several others.
  • Have worked NBA sidelines since 2013, for both ESPN and ABC.
  • Currently single, with a partner of three years, Anthony Alfonso.
  • Was married in 2015 and divorced in 2016 to David Kitchen, who passed away suddenly in July 2020.
