  • A Mexican and a US reporter cover controversial project in Baja California, funded by the US on Mexican territory.

Land + Sea

This project sent two reporters, one Mexican, one American, to Baja California to look at two controversial US-funded projects threatening the environment there: a gated community for ex-pat Americans, and what was set to be the world's first underwater mine. I helped the Mexican reporter place her pieces in several prestigious national outlets, coached her on digging for both sides of a story, and most satisfyingly, producing her first sound-rich radio reportage.


Hello. I'm a journalist, radio producer and teacher. I've worked in Latin America and the Caribbean for most of my career. My work has taken me across a minefield, into a gunfight, paddling a dugout canoe and inside the homes of many brave and generous people. I have also produced several major international reporting projects where a large part of my job was recruiting and mentoring local reporters. I love teaching, and besides journalism, I have taught soccer, robotics, anthropology and English.
