about me

Currently, I am a Knight-Bagehot Fellow in Economics and Business Journalism at Columbia University in New York City, a one-year program from 2016-2017. I came here 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 stories by day while delivering them by night out of the back of a white delivery van that I sped around the sleeping towns.

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.
