I’m a journalist with more than two decades of experience writing and editing stories around the world. I’m now a master’s candidate at the Energy & Resources Group at UC Berkeley studying renewable energy and climate change policy. I’m also writing and producing multimedia for the news startup California One (california1.us). Previously I coordinated health and immigration coverage at The Sacramento Bee; served as a Beijing-based correspondent for The Associated Press; planned and edited enterprise stories in Latin America for AP; served as McClatchy’s South America bureau chief overseeing coverage all over the continent; covered the 2010 California gubernatorial race for The Bee; and wrote about diversity and immigration issues for the Oakland Tribune and the Contra Costa Newspapers.
Throughout the years, I’ve tried to show how people find their own meaning amid all the change and complexity around them.
