Mexico City, CDMX, Mexico


Im a freelance multimedia reporter covering Latin Americas rural sector. My work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the Seattle Times, the Las Vegas Sun, Dow Jones Newswires, and other publications. Before I became an independent journalist, I covered commodities in Mexico, Central America and the Andean region for nearly three years as a correspondent for the Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones Newswires. I spent time with cocoa growers, opium poppy producers, coffee smugglers, anti-mining activists and more. I like any stories that shed an unusual light on rural supply chains. The forests, mountains and lowland plantations where I do most of my reporting are rich in visual detail, and I always seek out stories that provide depth and context to mainstream ideas about the origins of our food and other products were consume. I look for the sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes uplifting tales behind our chocolate bars and our vanilla lattés, the strange histories that make incomprehensible the knowledge that our golden earrings or corn flakes are valued at a few dollars, rather than being priceless.
