My Story

swh_6863-1

A Decade in Journalism:

I’ve spent the last 10 years working as an investigative journalist and foreign correspondent in California, Indonesia and, most recently, Uruguay and Brazil.

My work has been published in the New York Times, Washington Post, GlobalPost.com, and VoiceofSanDiego.org, to name just a few.

I spent eight years at the Voice of San Diego, where I worked as a beat reporter, investigative reporter and eventually Head of Investigations. During my tenure in San Diego, I was awarded several prizes, including a national award from ┬áInvestigative Reporters and Editors for a 2008 investigation into corruption at a local redevelopment association. I’ve been a finalist for the Livingstone Awards for young journalists twice in the last four years.

I’m currently living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I frequently travel throughout the region, working on in-depth stories for the GlobalPost and others. The rest of the time, I surf, travel to silly places and pretend I’m writing a novel.
