Professional Experience

A tri-lingual (English, Spanish, Italian) freelancer and licensed taxi driver, I've covered everything from tango in Buenos Aires to cab driving in New York and restaurants in Rome for a variety of US and international publications. I'm currently writing Driving Hungry (Vintage, 2014), the story behind my award-winning Taxi Gourmet blog, which has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, among other outlets in Europe and Latin America.
