I'm a journalist and literary translator based in Austin, Texas.

Presently, I’m a grantee at the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting for my work on the US/Mexico border. Before moving south, I was on the editorial staff at the New Yorker. My writing appears in POLITICO Magazine, the New York Times, the Nation, the New Yorker online, among other places, and in the anthology City by City: Dispatches from the American Metropolis (n+1 / FSG).

I studied Comparative Literature at Brown University and grew up in Arizona.
