I'm a freelance journalist currently based in Rio de Janeiro. I've written hundreds of articles for The Rio Times, one of the most popular English-language websites about Brazil. Currently I am Lonely Planet's 'local' writer in Rio de Janeiro. I have a good, working knowledge of Brazilian Portuguese. My articles have been featured and/or cited in Rio On Watch, Americas Society/Council of the Americas, the British and Commonwealth Society of Rio de Janeiro, and Panoramas (the online platform for the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Latin American Studies).
