My name is Martine and I'm a reporter.
I'm on a Fulbright Fellowship in Trinidad & Tobago, where I write about transportation.
Before that, I was a staffer at The Boston Globe for three years.
In fall 2015, I will be attending the Transom Story Workshop, a two-month audio production course in Cape Cod.
I'm good at making boring stuff interesting. Right now, I mostly write about transportation, traffic, urban design, and public funding for big infrastructure projects. I also write about the Caribbean. My blog, Bad Drive Trinidad, reaches 20,000 people per month. During my Fulbright year, I've written for the Trinidad Guardian, The Miami Herald, OZY, Latterly Magazine, and Caribbean Beat Magazine.
While I was at the Boston Globe, I served as the transportation beat reporter and covered everything from the Big Dig to the MBTA to Boston's burgeoning bike community. I also worked as a general assignment reporter, writing about small-town murder investigations, college cheating scandals, the 22-year-old mayor of a troubled city, and tasered cows.
Back in college, I was the online editor of the Yale Daily News, and I also worked at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Tampa Bay Times.
