I started Wanderer News as an online magazine in 2016 to publish freelance journalists’ otherwise unwanted stories and documentaries. While out in the field reporting, I was surprised at how often I heard colleagues mention that their fascinating story pitches weren’t being bought by larger news organizations and were going unreported. Media no longer has the budgets to pay freelancers for their work. Wanderer News aims to tell these stories, which often involve alternative cultures and lifestyles, from settled and roaming journalists — our Wanderers.
I started this cooking blog for my mother, a native Brazilian now a U.S. citizen, who wanted to post her recipes she’s created over the years. After designing and teaching her to use it, she now runs it mostly on her own. I’ll occasionally just pop in to edit some of her content.

I started this now defunct blog during a period of unemployment between a couple of my first news jobs in order to practice my skills at writing, interviewing and blogging. I’ve kept it around over the years as a reminder of how far I’ve come — and because I still find these stories interesting and inspiring.
