About Me

I'm a journalist originally from the United States and currently based in Costa Rica. I write for various publications on topics ranging from exotic fruit to forgotten episodes in Latin American history. But mostly fruit.

I’ve also developed and consulted on television content for shows including HBO’s Vice and National Geographic’s Explorer.

I have degrees in anthropology and cognitive science from the University of Pennsylvania and Oxford University. When I'm not writing, I'm probably making a smoothie, playing repetitive ambient music on the guitar, or recording insect sounds.
