Born in Mexico, raised in the US and currently back in Mexico, I write on drug policy reform, transportation policy, Mexico, security issues and life as it unrolls. I currently work with the Global Commission on Drug Policy on Latin American policy, communications and the United Nations. My posts are obviously from my personal point of view and don’t represent the Global Commission.
As a Truman Scholar and Public Service Fellow, I received a Masters in Public Policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. My bachelor’s degree in Political Science is from the University of Colorado at Denver (UCD). I previously worked with Students for Sensible Drug Policy, the Kellogg Foundation, the National Democratic Institute, the Denver Tent City Initiative and Mi Casa Resource Center on issues of comprehensive sexuality education, housing and homelessness, judicial reform and democracy and governance programs in Latin America.
