about me (my first name is pronounced like ruhr-ree)
I'm a Singapore-based editor at TIME magazine, responsible for Asia-Pacific regional coverage and global overnight news—journalism that spans topics from politics to climate to technology to sports and culture. I manage and edit staff based in TIME’s Asia bureau, and I coordinate and collaborate with colleagues in London and across the U.S.
I joined TIME in 2022 from POLITICO Magazine, where I worked 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.
Projects I’ve worked on have been finalists and winners of awards from the Society for News Design and the American Society of Magazine Editors.
Previously, I interned at Vox.com—covering politics, energy and the environment, and health—and I studied at Stanford University, where I launched and led a student magazine that published one of the best pieces, according to Longreads, of local reporting in 2017: an investigation of Silicon Valley mogul Peter Thiel's business and politics empire. I also factchecked part of Peter Baker and Susan Glasser's 2020 nonfiction book, The Man Who Ran Washington.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, I’m a proud member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and a dual Irish citizen.
