I am a magazine, audio and multi-media journalist and editor. I have particular expertise covering Latin American and Latine/o/a/x stories across the United States, and have also covered mental health, the environment, immigration, human smuggling, trauma, the intersection of politics and the arts, 2SLGBTQ+ communities, food, and music.
I've also produced podcasts for Spotify and The Conversation.
I have reported from across the United States and from Canada, Cuba, Mexico, Chile and Germany for a variety of outlets including Al Jazeera Magazine, FRONTLINE/World, Marketplace, The World, Latino USA, the Virginia Quarterly Review, the Utne Reader, the Christian Science Monitor, the Associated Press, Afar, Today.com and California Magazine, among others.
I have been a fellow at the Middlebury College Environmental Journalism program, Columbia University’s Hechinger Institute on Education and the Media, the RIAS Berlin Commission and the American Council on Germany. I've also been awarded grants and prizes for my reporting and writing by the Center for Investigative Reporting, the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, the North American Travel Journalists Association, and the Rona Jaffe Foundation. I’m always up for new collaborations.
