Peter Aronson

Journalist

Peter Aronson is an award-winning journalist with a total of two decades of experience working in radio, print, online journalism and photography.

His radio work has been featured on NPR, Marketplace, and Voice of America. He has produced two 30-minute radio documentaries and won national and regional awards for his work.

He has reported from the mountains of Mexico and the Moskva River, from Microsoft headquarters and from call centers in India. He traveled by canoe into the jungles of Nicaragua to report one story and climbed to a remote hilltop village in Nepal to report another. He speaks six languages, two of them fluently. He has worked as a producer-editor for MSNBC.com and as a vice president in the corporate world — in India.

Today, in addition to freelance writing, Peter focuses his energy on two things: drinking water for Mexicans (he's the co-founder of Biluu) and photography. In the past year, his photographs have been exhibited at the Museo Soumaya, the Museo de la Ciudad de Querétaro, and in New York City.
