About me 

I’m an independent reporter covering immigration, refugees, Latino issues, and human rights. My work has appeared in Politico Magazine, The Guardian, The Nation, The New RepublicColumbia Journalism Review, Pacific Standard, Popular Science, PRI’s The World, GEN Magazine, and TruthOut, as well as in syndication Salon, The Week, and CityLab. I’m based out of San Francisco, and I travel to Mexico frequently to report from the border.

Since October of 2020, I’ve served as Prism‘s elections correspondent, covering the aftermath of the 2020 election in Black and indigenous communities. 

I’m currently an Ida B. Wells fellow with Type Investigations at the Type Media Center, completing a year-long investigation on immigration and health care. 

I’m always happy to talk with editors about  freelance and full-time opportunities.
