I am an independent journalist moving to Amman, Jordan in 2017. I was based for six years in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where I was a recipient of the annual Inter American Press Association scholarship. I reflected on major stories in Brazil during my time in the country in a recent interview with Foreign Policy Interrupted.
I moved abroad in 2010 after working at the Christian Science Monitor and the Miami Herald. My work has appeared in Foreign Policy, The New York Times, USA Today, the Caravan, Latin Trade, GlobalPost, and the Islamic Monthly. I covered Rio’s gastronomical scene at CulinaryBackstreets.com. I also was a research assistant for the journalist Glenn Greenwald’s “No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State” (Metropolitan Books, published May 2014).
I speak Spanish and Portuguese and study Arabic. I graduated from Brown University.
