I am a writer, humorist and translator. I'm the author of "The Brazilian Music Book," a new collection of interviews with iconic Brazilian musicians, and co-author of "The Brazilian Sound: Samba, Bossa Nova and the Popular Music of Brazil" (Temple University Press) and the digital-media history "Entertainment in the Cyber Zone" (Random House). I have contributed blogs and articles about music, culture, politics and the environment to The Huffington Post, Billboard and many other publications. I have also worked on Portuguese/English translations for academics, government agencies and major corporations.
