Mexico City, CDMX, Mexico
I am a freelance journalist, photographer and editor currently based in Mexico City with a focus on architecture, food and drink, travel and culture.
Some of my recent work includes a special report in Architectural Digest on an effort to save Art Deco buildings in the wake of 2017’s earthquake and feature on the Chicago immigrant family behind the city’s ubiquitous queso fresco for Eater’s series on state of Mexican food across America.
In 2018 I co-launched Prensa Press, an independent publishing company and creative studio with the goal of working with passionate writers, artists, chefs, architects, designers and dreamers to help craft their stories and bring them to life. Our first book, Understanding Mezcal, published in March 2019.
I lived the first 29 years of my life in Chicago and spent most of my adult life as a staff writer at both DNAinfo Chicago and the Daily Herald.
2016 brought major change to my path, as I sidestepped the journalism world to opened and operated a Michelin-rated restaurant called Quiote and mezcaleria called Todos Santos. During that process, I learned the ins-and-outs of hospitality, the chef mindset and a whole lot about mezcal, agave spirits and Mexican cuisine.
In late 2018, I opened Dr. Pizza in Mexico City, to share my love of Neapolitan and Chicago-style pizzas with the world.
I am an experienced photographer, videographer and master pizza maker.
