I'm a Massachusetts native, my childhood was spent in Europe, I lived in New York City for ten years, and I’m now based in Mexico City. My early years abroad sparked a passionate interest in international affairs, leading to a master’s degree in journalism and Latin American studies from New York University and a career covering global issues as a writer, editor, and photographer.
As a writer and editor, I've covered a range of international topics, most recently covering Mexico’s presidential election and transition. My writing has appeared in The Boston Globe, World Politics Review, and Univision Noticias while CNN International, AFP, Business Insider, Huffington Post, and Latin America Advisor have featured my commentary. I also host the podcast series Latin America in Focus, which doubled its listeners from 2017 to 2018 and, in the latter year, the podcast achieved near gender parity when it came to interviewees.
For more than a decade, I’ve focused on digital media. As the editor-in-chief of AS/COA Online, the website of the Americas Society and Council of the Americas, I direct the editorial team and oversee online operations that encompass social media, livestreaming, and video production. During my tenure, I've managed two relaunches of as-coa.org; in 2007, I oversaw its move from a site built using software discontinued four years earlier to a custom-built platform and, in 2012, I managed a strategic redesign on Drupal that earned sponsorship for AS/COA's webcasting.
Prior to joining AS/COA in 2007, I covered Asia as website staff writer for the Council on Foreign Relations. While there, I managed production of an interactive guide to the North Korean nuclear crisis that helped CFR.org’s Crisis Guide series win a 2007 Knight-Batten Award for Innovations in Journalism.
Outside of work and parenting, I enjoy photography. ReVista: Harvard Review of Latin America, The New York Times and NYTimes.com, and Letras Libres are among the publications and companies that have published or featured my photos.
