I have worked for major media in Spanish and English in both Latin America and the United States.

I am the author of Guatemala: A Guide to the People, Politics and Culture, (Interlink Books, NY) and co-editor of “The Right to Remain Silent: An Anthology of Class Writings from Julia Tutwiler Prison for Women,” (Aid to Inmate Mothers, AL).

I am currently finishing my third book, Birding to Change the World.
