Erik Ortiz

Erik Ortiz joined AAJA-Philly while he was a business reporter in Atlantic City, and through AAJA won a scholarship to attend business courses at The Wharton School in 2008. Two years later, he left the sand in his sandals behind at the shore for New York — although he stayed a loyal member of the Philly chapter. He currently works for the New York Daily News, and has interviewed Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, wrote about body painting in Brooklyn and does the occasional celeb story.

  • Super power he wants: Teleportation — would never have an excuse to be late!
  • Signature saying: Gung hay fat choy! (‘Happy New Year!’ in Chinese)
