I am a reporter and editor for the New York Times Automobiles section. When I'm not slaving away at the Times' Mothership in the Big Apple, I love spending time at the beach surfing, swimming, running and relaxing. I'm into cycling and pretty much any type of outdoor activity, and true to my profession, I'm into wrenching on old beat up cars. When I travel, I love staying with locals, because it's the best way to get to know a place.
My wife, Juliana, and I live in a section of Brooklyn, N.Y. called Red Hook. It's near the water and far enough from the city to not feel like city anymore. She's half Colombian and I'm half Sicilian. Between the two of us, we crank out some pretty animated conversation.
