I published my first article when I was 13 years old on the color blue and my trip to Havana, Cuba.
Since then I’ve had the chance to write for newspapers, news weeklies, web sites, academic audiences and more. Writing is both challenging and rewarding, but for me, the best part is the excuse to have real and authentic conversations with the people whom I encounter.
One of these days I’ll make a more extensive catalogue of my published works. For now, here’s an impartial list.
