James Fredrick

I am a freelance journalist based in Mexico City. I started here as a print journalist focusing mostly on business, economics, and the energy. I now cover a wider range of issues in all media, including fixing and producing video stories as well as some basic shooting and editing on DSLRs. My favorite issues to cover are immigration, the informal economy, and natural resources/energy issues. I've worked with Al Jazeera, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Global Post, Latin Finance, Latin Trade, Makeshift magazine, and others. I also host, produce, and edit a podcast on Latin American current events.
