Michel Marizco photoMichel Marizco serves as KJZZ's Fronteras: the Changing America Desk Senior Field Correspondent in Tucson, AZ. 

His work focuses on transnational trafficking syndicates, immigration, federal law enforcement and those weird, wild stories that make the U.S.-Mexico border such an inherently fascinating region.

Before joining the Fronteras Desk, he produced stories in the field for CNN Madrid, the BBC, 60 Minutes Australia and the CBC.

Marizco is a contributing author on Shared Responsibility: U.S.-Mexico Policy Options for Confronting Organized Crime and an occasional writer at High Country News.
