I’m a multimedia journalist and writer based in the New York metro area. I currently work as a reporter on The Wall Street Journal’s World Real-Time Desk. I write and produce features, blog posts, explainers and sidebars for the WSJ.com World page, and also report and research for graphics, timelines and other multimedia pieces.
Before that, I covered emerging markets for The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones Newswires for three years, as part of the foreign exchange team. While on the emerging-market beat, I wrote about more than 30 emerging- and frontier-market economies, including these countries’ stocks, bonds and currencies. My stories on investment trends among developing-market assets and currency markets frequently appeared in the paper’s Money & Investing section, with several leading the section’s front page.
During that time, I also launched, hosted and produced a weekly podcast on the foreign exchange market, called “Currency Talk.” Each week, I with a co-host would discuss the latest currency market trends with top investors, fund managers and analysts. I also conceptualized, launched and managed a multimedia project called DJ FX Frenzy, which was a tournament-style competition where strategists put forth their best trade ideas. I twice received the company’s Indy award for my innovative multimedia coverage of the foreign exchange market.
I graduate studied international reporting at the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism, with an emphasis on interactive journalism and radio reporting. I graduated with a master’s degree in journalism in 2010. At CUNY, I reported extensively on the Mexican immigrant community of New York City. I’m also a proud graduate of Mount Holyoke College. I’m originally from Western Massachusetts. (Go Red Sox!)
When I’m not writing about international news and markets, I love hiking, baking and cooking (vegan desserts are among the latest experiments), running, traveling, and reading. Attempts at gardening are in the plans for this spring. Check out my contact page for different ways to reach me.
