Hello. My name is Patricia Marroquin. Most of my career was spent as a journalist at such media companies as the Los Angeles Times, the Dallas Morning News, San Jose Mercury News, the Ventura County Star, and Hispanic Business Media. In 2011, I joined the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I am the Communications Director for the Graduate Division. In addition to writing and editing, I do photography, videography, and social media.

Photography is my passion. I have won awards for my photography, including from the National Park Service and the State Fair of Texas; and first, second and third place awards at the Ventura County Fair. In 2005, one of my images was named Ventura County Fair Directors' Choice. I also won an award from the city of Ventura and have had my images published in photography books. I am a contributor to Getty Images' Moment collection.

I live with my husband, George Foulsham, who is Executive Director of Communications at UCLA's Luskin School of Public Affairs; our Golden retriever Bella; and our miniature Australian shepherd Ginger in Oxnard, California.
