I'm a multimedia reporter based in Mexico City for the last 6 years, working across Mexico and Central America. I started primarily as a writer, but now work more often in radio and video. Over the last few years, my main area of focus has been migrants crossing Mexico and asylum seekers fleeing Central America, documenting the dangerous journey north and the legal mazes to find protection internationally. I also write about crime and Mexico's drug war, politics, sports, and culture across the region.
