I am currently based in Los Angeles, covering the American West for The Economist .
I grew up in New York City and have lived in London and Buenos Aires, where I worked for almost four years as the The Economist's correspondent for Argentina and Uruguay. I have also contributed to other publications such as Vanity Fair, The Atlantic, California Sunday Magazine, Foreign Policy, The Daily Beast, The New York Post, The Huffington Post, and Americas Quarterly.
I feel the E.B. White quote on this page aptly sums up my eternal writing (and life) struggle. As you might gather from my clips, I am drawn towards two types of stories: the informative, or conventionally important; and the peculiar, which I believe are just as meaningful. I hope to always do both.
I graduated as a Journalism Scholar from Yale University in 2011 with honors.
