Upon graduating from Dominican University in 2011 he worked as an ESL Instructor, with local political groups, and even appeared on Russia Today discussing the Mexican Presidential Elections. Jose also has four years’ experience working in higher education administration working at the University of San Francisco and Loyola Marymount University respectively. During his time in his Master of Arts program at the University of San Francisco he wrote his Master's thesis on the relationship between boxing trainers and the adolescent men of color that they train into elite fighters. The thesis is titled Alternative Paths to Empowerment, The Role of Boxing Trainers as Coaches, Mentors, and Liberators to Young Men of Color. Throughout his previous Master's program he interviewed renowned boxers and trainers such as: Oscar De La Hoya, Virgil Hunter, John David Jackson, Sergey Kovalev, Andre Berto, and Abel Sanchez. His research inspired him to pursue a career in Sports Journalism given his passion for sports at the S. I. Newhouse School. He also hopes to use his previous education and research to bring a critical perspective as a commentator and analyst in boxing, soccer, MMA, and sports in general.
