About

I am a US-born, UK-based historian and journalist with a large obsession about small islands, which led me to write my first book – Empire’s Crossroads: A History of the Caribbean from Columbus to the Present Day, published by Pan Macmillan in the UK and Grove/Atlantic in the United States.

Since then, I’ve been working on a more (but not completely!) land-based project that involves the US-Mexico border and beyond … more information on that book coming soon. In the meantime, have a look at some of my journalism or photography.

Thanks for visiting!
