Now

Where: Mexico City

Work: Developing models to measure the impact of social protection programmes on poverty. Testing and improving actuarial tools for in-country applications. Capacity building on all the above.

Writing: Beginnings of essays, notes, commissioned articles on 'things that matter', my newsletter.

What I'm thinking about: Capitalism, colonialism and resilience. Giving shape and intention to all the writing I put out there. Finding and learning to trust my creative voice. How to get out of the brambles of imposter syndrome. Where to publish a book of poetry and photos on the body.

What I'm reading: Political food writing (Alicia Kennedy's newsletter, Ruby Tandoh's Eat Up), books about writing (Paulette Perhach's Welcome to the Writer's Life), and the hypersensorially raw Crying in H Mart (Michelle Zauner).

Here, you'll find a map of my life right now: what I'm up to, what I'm working on, thinking about, and reading. The idea of a 'Now' page is inspired by Derek Sivers.
