about me

I was a 2016-2017 Knight-Bagehot Fellow in Economics and Business Journalism at Columbia University in New York City, where I earned my M.S. from the Graduate School of Journalism with additional completion of courses at the School of Business. I came to Columbia from Brazil, where I was a correspondent covering Brazilian politics, economics, and culture for Americas Quarterly, Fusion, and The Christian Science Monitor.

Previously, I covered Wall Street for the Financial Times Group, edited from the Monitor’s world desk in Boston, and lived in Phnom Penh while reporting on the Khmer Rouge tribunal for The Cambodia Daily and The Economist. I got my start with The Day newspaper in southeastern Connecticut, where I reported for the same newspaper that I delivered at night from a white delivery van.

In-between there’s been lots of moving and traveling and exploring. Like a three-week mountaineering expedition in December 2014 to the summit of Aconcagua, the tallest point in the Western Hemisphere, which I wrote about for The New Yorker.
