about me (my first name is pronounced like ruhr-ree)
I’m a Singapore-based editor at TIME, responsible for steering Asia-Pacific regional reportage and overseeing global overnight news—journalism that spans every topic from politics to culture and society. I manage and edit editorial staff based in the magazine’s Asia bureau, and I coordinate and collaborate with colleagues in London and across the U.S. on daily coverage as well as special projects.
I moved to Singapore from Washington, D.C., where I worked for POLITICO Magazine since 2016—first as a researcher and ultimately as an associate editor, with a focus on enterprise, visual and interactive features, and analysis. At POLITICO, I wrote and edited stories on immigration, climate, criminal justice, activism, media, law, and more. I also oversaw the magazine's production, factchecking, and freelance administration, and I managed its internship program, among other responsibilities.
Much earlier, I interned at Vox.com—covering energy and the environment, politics and policy, and health and science—and I studied at Stanford University, where I launched and led a student magazine that published one of the year’s best pieces of local reporting, according to Longreads. Born and raised in Los Angeles, I’m a proud member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and a dual Irish citizen.
