Antonio covers government, politics and other regional issues in Fairfax County, a place that is bigger and more complicated than you'd initially think. He became a journalist in 1995, and has worked in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago before joining the Post in September of 2013.

Antonio was born and raised in Huntington Park, CA, another place that is more complicated than it appears. Antonio enjoys a well-made Old-Fashioned, loves to exercise and is a sucker for an expertly crafted sentence.
