BIOGRAPHY

(All biographical info is from 2017. For latest bio, please visit Fellow’s website, LinkedIn, or other social media profiles).

Peter Aronson has nearly two decades of experience reporting for roadcast, online, and print news – plus recent experience working in Mexico’s social-impact business community.

He has reported for NPR’s news programs, for the business program Marketplace, and was a correspondent for the program World Vision Report. He has worked as a producer-editor for MSNBC.com and as a vice president of a joint venture in India. His work — alone and as part of a news team — has won awards for breaking news, investigative reporting, enterprise reporting, and features.

Peter has reported from coffee plantations in Mexico and from Moscow, sidestepped landmines in the jungles of Nicaragua, forded rivers and climbed mountains to report stories in Nepal, negotiated the backstreets of India, got tear-gassed during riots in Seattle and spent hours sitting on the pavement with homeless teens. He is also an accomplished photographer, and his photographs have been featured in museums and galleries in New York, Washington, Mexico City, and Mumbai.

In recent years, Peter has been working to solve Mexico’s drinking-water problems as a co-founder of Biluu, a company that offers highly effective, sustainable water purifiers for home and office use. He speaks fluent Spanish and is a full-time resident of Mexico.
