I’m a Los Angeles-based journalist who covers legal and security issues.
I currently work as a senior employment reporter for the legal news service Law360.
Previously, I was based in Medellín, Colombia and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where I worked as senior editor and contributing writer for InSight Crime, a leading source of news and analysis on organized crime in the Americas.
My reporting on topics like caravans of amputee migrants from Central America, Brazil’s tumultuous 2018 election, Rudy Giuliani’s security consulting business, and Argentina’s deadliest terrorist attack has been published at outlets including VICE News, Vox, Jacobin magazine, LobeLog and others.
I have a master’s degree in U.S. foreign policy and national security from American University and a bachelor’s degree in journalism and international studies from the University of Miami. I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese.
