I'm the author of Brazillionaires—a "compelling tale of Brazil’s superrich, which deftly weaves lurid soap opera with high finance and outrageous political skulduggery," as a review in The Wall Street Journal put it. I've also written for The Atlantic, The Baffler, Bloomberg Businessweek, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and The Washington Post. I live in Brooklyn.
Going farther back: My last name is Bolivian, but I was born in New York City and grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After studying Latin American literature at Sarah Lawrence College, I moved to Bogotá in 2008 to report on the politics of Colombia and Venezuela. I spent 2010 to 2016 based in São Paulo, mostly covering the ultra-rich but also Brazil's political turmoil, the Zika epidemic, and the Rio Olympics.
