Brazil and Latin America

I was The Daily Telegraph’s Brazil correspondent in 2010 and 2011 and I’m returning to the country during the 2014 World Cup. I was one of a handful of Western journalists reporting from Rio’s favelas as police attempted to establish ‘pacification units’, I broke the story that Brazil’s economy was overtaking the UK’s, I reported on President Barack Obama’s first trip to Brazil and I secured an exclusive interview with the British couple dramatically rescued from the Amazon rainforest.

I continue to take a keen interest in Brazil and South America and to write about the region. Please click on the links below for selected recent articles and my Telegraph archive.
