I am a freelance journalist based in Mexico City. I grew up outside Washington DC and moved to Mexico in 2013. Now in my third year of full-time freelance reporting, my work focuses on environmental politics, immigration and urbanism. In the past year, I have written for outlets including CityLab, The New Republic , and Longreads. Previous to reporting, I had a Fulbright research grant and worked with a Mexican anthropologist. I am a cyclist and runner at high altitude in Mexico City. At Hampshire College in Massachusetts, I studied development and the environment. My portfolio is www.marthapskowski.com .
