I took most of December off due to exhaustion. I did produce one report for Al Jazeera that aired last weekend. Video is by my friend Santiago Billy, with voice over by John Holman. Please take a look. Now that 2021 has begun I should be getting back to coverage. Keep an eye out here for pending updates and new work.

This photo is from the November 21, 2020 protests in Guatemala City shortly after a part of the congressional building was set on fire. I sadly wasn’t able to publish anything the day of the protests and the photos from that day never were really published any where.

December is looking like it is going to be slower for me than November. So far I have only published one article for Diálogo Chino on the incoming Biden administration and what it means for the new Geo-political struggle in Latin America. There is always the possibility that I will write at least one other piece this month, but it remains unclear and I honestly really need a vacation.

Anyways, give the piece a read.

 

Biden and the US-China-Latin America Triangle

This has been an odd year and per usual I’ve failed at updating this website. I’m hoping to change that in the new year. Here is my most recent work that came out in November and beginning of December 2020. Lastly I will be updating the photos in my portfolio in the coming weeks.

After nearly 2 years, I have finally updated the site. I am hopefully going to load a few other sets from 2015, 2016, and 2017 to the site here in the next couple weeks.

Also, here is a link to one of my most recent articles that is currently available in the April/May issue of The Progressive Magazine.

There are a lot of updates that I will be making, so keep checking back to see all the work that I have been up to since the last time I made an update.

It has been awhile since I last updated the site. A lot has happened between Summer 2015 and Summer 2016. I’m planning on uploading photos and a few links to the site here in the next week. Also I have a few unpublished essays that I will share here on the blog. Lastly, in the coming months I will be publishing photos with a new website called Comvite. I’ll share links here.
