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. 

 

“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between the desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. That makes it hard to plan the day.” E.B. White
