He got his first start in journalism reporting on Forex/macro, capital markets and corporate governance at Reuters, also covering global policymakers. On occasion, he muses independently about movies, music and popular culture.
A Long Island native who currently resides in Brooklyn, Javier holds a B.A. in economics and politics from Long Island University, and a Master of Public Administration from Columbia University. He speaks fluent Spanish, passably conversational French, and can order french fries and chicken in German. Sadly, he never quite mastered Klingon.
