I’m a bilingual journalist from Chicago reporting on organized crime, security and human rights in Latin America. I currently work as a staff writer covering organized crime in Latin America and the Caribbean for InSight Crime.

I have a BA from DePaul University in journalism and Spanish, as well as a minor in Latin American studies. My work has been featured in, among others, El BeiSMan, La Jornada in México, Agúzate, AlterNet, In These Times magazine, Jacobin, The Crime Report, Forbes México, The North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA), Business Insider, and the Security Assistance Monitor’s blog, a project of the Center for International Policy.
