Investigative Journalism

I’m a freelance journalist, producer and investigator based in Mexico City, reporting mainly on organized crime, drug trafficking and other criminal activities, although I also cover culture, immigration and other current affairs. I have reported for many of the international media in both video and text, and am a former employee of the Los Angeles Times Mexico Bureau, the Financial Times and InSight Crime, a foundation dedicated to the study of organized crime. My main clients are now, Vice, the Telegraph newspaper and InSight Crime.
