reports from the road


About BEN


I cover Latin American markets for Bloomberg News. I've previously reported on venture capital for Forbes, adventure sports for Outside Magazine, and music for Minnesota Public Radio.

I have also worked at the St. Paul Pioneer PressThe Colorado Springs Gazette, and as a correspondent in Spain and Morocco. I'm particularly fascinated by the art of immersion journalism. I've spent weeks with homeless teens in Colorado Springs, Syrian refugees in Morocco, and ultra marathoners in the Sahara Desert to tell their stories.

When I'm not reporting, I enjoy hunting down the next vegan café gem, running through the backwoods and dreaming up big projects.

Always on the lookout for the next adventure or story, I can be reached by e-mail: benbartenstein(AT)gmail(dot)com.
