I write about music, culture and NY news for Agence France Presse. My other bylines include Harper’sAl Jazeera America, The Atlantic, Le Monde DiplomatiquePublic Radio International and the Associated Press, among others.

I have worked in French, German and Spanish, and can navigate in Italian. I completed a joint global journalism master’s degree at New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute and Institute of French Studies.

After growing up on a vegetable farm just outside Madison, WI, I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in journalism and international studies. Now that I don’t live there, Wisconsin is my vision of utopia.
