I am a 25-year-old freelance correspondent in Mexico City. My preferred modes of transportation are horses and motorcycles. I grew up in San Diego and studied in Los Angeles. I like Chai Tea Lattés, dirt roads, Jon Krakauer books, Russian Lit, mountain climbing, the Ducati Monter and slow lorises. In my blog, I chronicle my life after abandoning my steady job at one of the world’s most respected news agencies in order to make a living doing what I love. My work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the Seattle Times, the San Diego CityBeat and more.
