Adrian Carrasquillo is the editor of Latino coverage at BuzzFeed, the social news and entertainment company. More information will be forthcoming on this effort but the idea is to tell important stories on a powerful national platform that aren’t being told without pandering to the audience or segregating the content. Latino is mainstream and Latino is American and it’s about time the media reflected that. He also is a reporter covering immigration, race and culture. Previously, he helped launch NBC Latino at NBC News, where he managed social media and was a reporter. He loves his cat Patches who just turned 16 years old. Twitter:@RealAdrianC
