I am a reporter deeply interested in the Southeast Asia region. I’ve written for the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (Manila), the Jakarta Post Newspaper (Indonesia), Caravan Magazine (India) and a number of US-based media, including the Miami Herald, the New York Times, Al Jazeera America and Latin Beat Magazine. I also file radio stories for Public Radio International, WNYC and WBAI’s Asia Pacific Forum. Currently, I am a producer/reporter for Southern California Public Radio’s Take Two, a daily two-hour program that airs across the West Coast.

“Her tone was impossible to describe: it was a complaint, a reproach, a lament; it was a supplication; it was pain reduced to sound.”
–Jose Rizal, Noli Me Tangare
