Before working for the FT I was based in Chile, working freelance, mostly for The BBC and The Economist but for other media outlets from Time magazine to The Guardian to ABC in Australia. I have 25 years of experience as a journalist. I started at Reuters, where I was staff for 14 years. I’ve covered conflicts in Iraq and Lebanon, World Cups in South Korea and South Africa and dozens of other major news stories. More recently I’ve started teaching journalism to others. I’ve run training courses for the Thomson Reuters Foundation in Argentina, Colombia and Venezuela and for the United Nations in Panama. I work in print, radio and television. You can see my freelance work on my website and contact me here.
