I am a journalist, author and photographer who writes for the New York Times, World Soccer, CNN and GQ magazine, amongst others, as well being the Associate Editor at Delayed Gratification, the world's first slow journalism magazine. I've reported from over 60 countries and had my work translated into more than 20 languages.
