Journalist and fixer at the Venezuelan border

amazon (2).jpg

In 2017 I left behind my seat at the Houston Chronicle business desk to try my luck as a freelancer in Colombia. It went well. I´d hoped to live in Venezuela but never got a visa, so I mostly cover the migration crisis from the Colombian borderlands. Feel free to get in touch for any reason.

Hola! Soy Dylan. En 2017 dejé mi puesto con un diario en Houston, Texas para venir a reporter sobre Venezuela. Al principio pensé vivir en Venezuela, pero nunca me dieron visa, así que me quedé en Colombia para estudiar la migración en este país. A veces también publico sobre otras cosas en la política Colombiana.
