GlobalPost senior correspondent, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
I’ve spent the last 10 years working as an investigative journalist and foreign correspondent in California, Indonesia and, most recently, Uruguay and Brazil.
My work has been published in the New York Times, GlobalPost and Voice of San Diego to name just a few.
I spent eight years at the Voice of San Diego, where I worked as a beat reporter, investigative reporter and eventually Head of Investigations. During my tenure in San Diego, I was awarded several prizes, including a national award from Investigative Reporters and Editors. I’ve been a finalist for the Livingston Awards for young journalists twice in the last four years.
I currently live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I frequently travel throughout the region, working on in-depth stories for GlobalPost. The rest of the time, I surf, spend time with my two wonderful daughters and my wife, Christin, travel to silly places and pretend I’m writing a novel.

There are no cashiers. No cash registers. No computers to ring up bills and no credit card machines. Instead, there is just a bowl, into which people drop voluntary cash amounts. Remarkably, the honor system is working, says Curto Café’s owner.
