“Now more than ever people are looking to how the law and the Supreme Court can shape important aspects of their lives and their freedoms,” Cristian tells Media Moves. “I’m really lucky that I’ll get to shed some more light on it all, no matter if the final outcome is good or bad.”
In addition to NYMag, during the past year his work also appeared in The New Republic, El Diario and Fusion..
