Brazil Correspondent for The Daily Telegraph 2010-2011

I was The Daily Telegraph’s Brazil correspondent in 2010 and 2011, covering news and business.

Based in São Paulo, the largest city in the southern hemisphere, I also reported from locations such as Rio de Janeiro, Brasília, the Amazon and Bolivia. I was one of only a handful of Western journalists reporting from on the ground in Rio’s favelas as elite police units attempted to establish ‘pacification units’ ahead of the World Cup and Olympics. I was also the only reporter to secure an interview with the British couple rescued by helicopter from the Amazon rainforest in 2011.

In business news, I broke the story that Brazil’s economy was overtaking the UK’s for the first time and wrote extensively about Brazil’s oil and gas discoveries. In politics I reported on Brazil’s 2010 presidential election and President Barack Obama’s first trip to Brazil in 2011.
