Almeida here. I'm a full-time freelance journalist based in New York. I write/report/produce—or any combination of the three—for different outlets. Fluent in Portuguese. Conversational in Spanish. Getting by in English.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes, for a script I wrote in the sixth grade—inspired by RENT—and later performed in my living room in Texas.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

In a fever dream, J. Conn from Blood Diamond. Definitely not Peter Parker.

What tools and software do you use to do your job?

Paper, pen, recorder, google docs, camera
