I’m a freelance writer with bylines at The Atlantic, The Awl, Bloomberg Businessweek, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, Slate, and The Washington Post. (Well, and Twitter, more than I'm proud of.) My first book, Brazillionaires: Wealth, Power, Decadence, and Hope in an American Country, came out in the summer of 2016.
Going farther back: I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After graduating from Sarah Lawrence College (class of ’05), I worked for a while in book publishing in New York before moving to Bogotá to become a journalist. From 2010 to 2016 I lived in São Paulo, where I covered the ultra-rich as a full-time job—the basis for my book. Now I'm back in New York.
