Hello and thanks for visiting. Let me tell you a little about me:


  • I’m the founder of Wide Avenues, a storytelling and investigations agency focused on English and local language content out of South America. Our team’s focus is on delivering captivating multimedia narratives of the highest quality that hit a home run with mass audiences.


  • A year in the making, my stories in TIME and The New York Times on the future of the Amazon were published, delving deep in the history and present of the world’s largest rainforest. They are complemented by breath-taking photography and augmented reality models of the jungle.


  • I’m most passionate about the power of enduring human stories, especially from remote corners of the globe, to help us better comprehend the world. I do my best to compile the best examples of books, articles and documentaries in an occasional newsletter. Find out more
