I’m a freelance reporter, editor and journalism trainer based in the Washington, D.C. area. My writing has appeared in publications including the Baltimore Sun, Climate Liability News, Los Angeles Times, PBS MediaShift, Wall Street Journal Europe and Travel+Leisure.
Previously, I edited Knight International Media Innovators for the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ). A former director of ICFJ’s International Journalists’ Network (IJNet) and former managing editor of American Journalism Review, I have taught news reporting, writing and digital media skills for organizations including the University of Maryland Philip Merrill College of Journalism, the Humphrey Fellowships, the United Nations Environmental Program and ICFJ.
A fluent Spanish speaker, I have lived and worked as a journalist in Mexico, Slovenia and Washington, D.C. I’ve also lived in India and in Belize, where I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer.
