Hi, I’m Adriana Diaz and I am a journalist and producer based in New York City. I currently work at the New York Post and The Sun freelance for Best Life Online covering a range of topics from breaking news to entertainment.
I previously worked at TMX.news as a booker, journalist, editor, and producer. My videos have been picked up by outlets such as People, DailyMail, Good Morning America, and The Washington Post.
I am skilled in social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat), video editing programs (Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, and iMovie), design software (Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Spark, and Adobe InDesign), and can be the ultimate stalker to get in touch with a contact for a story or project (LexisNexis, Celebrity Service, RocketReach, Lusha, PeopleFinder, and People Search).
While in college at Boston University studying journalism with a minor in Women’s Gender Studies and a concentration in Spanish, I worked in Boston, Los Angeles, and Madrid.
After graduating, I worked with the nation’s top anti-human trafficking organizations using data journalism to investigate human trafficking networks.
Because I can never be too busy, I also worked with a small women-owned start-up called Slay Beauty Pass managing their social media, running their blog, and acquiring new business partnerships.
I have a wide range of interests from international women’s rights to celebrity gossip….are we really going to be done keeping up with the Kardashians?
Some days I can’t stop reading in the cozy corner of the coach and others I’m running 10 miles down the East River.
I love meeting new people and have been known to ask a lot of questions – so get ready!
