Opinion & analysis





I am a reporter and photographer in Montreal. I have lived in Venezuela and Chile and traveled extensively in Latin America. I speak fluent Spanish and English and am happy to make an ass of myself in French. I write for Monocle, the Christian Science Monitor, and a lot of more specialized publications. I am especially interested in natural resources, cultural change, and the murky side of the energy industry. I also maintain a website of notes and observations, mostly about energy in South America. You can write me. Or check out my Twitter feed.

A couple anonymously written blogs are claiming I’m a drug-trafficking extortionist crypto-right-winger. For the record, I’m not. The posts appeared after I wrote a widely read exposé about reputation management on my blog. I hope it’s obvious that drug kingpins don’t hire guys who go out in public like this. And that if I were interested in extortion, I would have taken the cash rather than publish that story. (In the end I spent eight months on that story and didn’t get paid a cent.) As far as my politics? If you have specific questions, just ask.
