I’m a freelance journalist.
I go from text to images, back and forth again.
I write, produce, research. I publish in media such as The New York Times, Gatopardo, La Jornada; and I have collaborated with Al Jazeera Witness, RedFish, Vice, among others.
I was a correspondent for teleSUR and El Telégrafo. I am founder and editor of Bocado.lat.
I have been a Pulitzer Center and Rainforest Fund fellow, teaming up with Soledad Barruti and Miguel Tovar; I have also been a fellow of UNESCO’s Investigative Journalism Pilot Programme with Wendy Selene Pérez and Miguel Tovar.
I wrote the book Ayotzinapa, horas eternas (with three editions: Ediciones B, Eduvim, Brigada para Leer en Libertad). I am co-author of four other books
Together with John Gibler and Daniela Rea, I did the research for the documentary VIVOS, directed by Ai Wei Wei (2020). I worked on The Days of Ayotzinapa (Netflix, 2019) and Blood in the wall (National Geographic/Junger Quested, 2020) Endangered (HBO/Loki Films, 2022) among other experiences. I researched and hosted the US-Mexico chapter of the series After the War (Muzungu-teleSUR, 2019).
I sometimes work as an external consultant for non-governmental organisations. I have written three reports on violence against the press, right to truth, children and disappearance.
